How is PWN pronounced?
What Does ‘Pwn‘ Mean? It looks impossible to pronounce: pwn. We’re not feeling mean enough to make you guess how to say it, so we’ll just come right out and tell you: it’s pronounced like it’s spelled “pone.” As in, take the word own and put a “p” in front and then take out the “o” but pretend it’s still there.
Is the T silent in exactly?
In practice, yes it is virtually silent unless one makes a special effort to pronounce it. When we have a consonant cluster here /ktl/ one sound is often not heard. The linguistice term for it is “dissimilation”.
