    Re: incorrect deletion

    -People often drop the g in -ing words: comin', goin'....

    -February is often pronounced FEB-yoo-air-ee.

    -Asked is often pronounced AST.

    -Reservoir is often pronounced REZ-uh-vor.

    -The British often drop the h from the beginning of words: 'istory, 'amlet, 'eart, 'orse....

    -Those are all incorrect.
