    Seventy

    Do Americans skip the "t" in seventy?
    To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top.

    Maybe some do. I don't, but it might sound more like "d" than "t".

    The /v/ also can disappear in some American accents, leaving "senny". I'm pretty sure I render it that way myself when speaking casually.
    I am not a teacher.
