    First of all <---1) Firs sof fall 2)First dof fall
    Last year <---1)Last dear 2) Last shear 3) Las syear
    World has <---1)World das 2) World las
    Want it <--1)Want dit 2)Want nit

    Which ones are correct?

    Thank you in advance!!! :o

    You may well hear British speakers dropping the 't' sound completely in 'first of all'.
