Query Details

Linguistic LingField(s):  Phonetics

Query:   The pronunciation of OFTEN with an aspirated t in the second syllable
can be heard from English-speakers on both sides of the Atlantic.
Does anyone know about its distribution in the UK or US? Is it found
in other English-speaking countries? Has anyone recorded OFTEN with
and without t as a stylistic variable in a single speaker?

I'll post a summary if response warrants it.
