    "midst"



    Why is d sound being dropped in Oral English in the word midst while it does exist in phonetic transcriptions in dictionaries?

    /ˈmɪdst/

    /mdst/

    [midst]

    It's in the phonemic transcription because it is not normally dropped. If it were, the transcription would be /mɪst/
