    You probably mean "Why is the word particular PRONOUNCED piticular".
    If so, it's not a common pronunciation. The first 'i' is often a schwa.
    Strangely though, it's often pronounced as written when talking about particles, as in "There is particular matter in this water".

    Thanks mate! 1st for correcting the sentence(which I wrote when I was totally wasted) and 2nd for the explanation.
