Examples of pronouncing the H in Anthony? Ro Thorpe 18:15, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

Someone I knew at school. Maybe it's standard in the North East, I don't know. Peter Jackson 09:59, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
Better remove it then. After all, we're talking normal pronunciation here. Ro Thorpe 20:33, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Oxford Dictionary of Pronunciation, 2001: Br t; Am θ, t
  • Cambridge English Pronouncing Dictionary, 18th ed, 2011: Br t, θ; Am θ, t; θ becoming commoner in Br
  • BBC Pronouncing Dictionary of British Names, 2nd ed, OUP, 1983: t, θ
  • Longman Pronouncing Dictionary, 2000: t predominating in Br, θ in Am
The deliberately vague wording I used seems accurate enough, though you might want more detail. Wikipedia cites a source I haven't checked saying θ usual in Aus too. Peter Jackson 12:04, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
OK, then. Such are the enticements of spelling pronunciation. Ro Thorpe 13:45, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Interesting that neither of us thought of asking or very own Anthony. Peter Jackson 09:15, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
Indeed. Are you reading us, Thony? Ro Thorpe 18:21, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

Is there some basis for "usually"? It doesn't seem to square with the authorities cited above. Peter Jackson (talk) 10:45, 16 December 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, I'd forgotten about this exchange and needless to say still, in my sheltered life, have never heard the TH pronunciation. So please make the necessary changes. Ro Thorpe (talk) 16:50, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
