How do YOU say this word?

anecdote


DS asked me how to pronounce it, and I told him I generally say it (and hear it said ) without the hard "c" sound, but the dictionary shows it with the "c" sound and dictionary.com has the audio say it with the c. Just curious if everyone pronounces the c or not.

  • AN-ec-dote. Or maybe AN-e-dote if I' in a hurry and not speaking clearly. Not antidote, which I've heard people say; it's a completely different word.

  • I tend to say "an-i-dote" hehe. I've always heard it that way so just assumed the c was silent.
