    Re: topless

    Topless, as in not wearing a shirt?
    I'd pronounce it "top-less."

    Re: topless

    I'd say top'less.

    I'm also from North America (Canada).

    There's an audio pronunciation here:

    Re: topless

    Interesting. If I try to say "top-less", I have to aspirate the P slightly. So I group the P with the "less".

    Though it's not a word I use every day.
