    Default Is she saying "Automatically"?

    Hi Everyone,

    I am not sure if the broadcaster said "Automatically", but I don't know why she pronounced "Automatly" without the sound of "tic". Please advise.

    W, I think the broadcaster is saying 'ultimately' instead of automatically. Listen, again, and let me know what you hear!

    You're right, I seldomly use this word 'ultimately', thanks for helping me to recall this vocabulary.
