How do you pronounce “often”?
a. with the “t”
b. without the “t”
c. all of the above


The answer is (c) all of the above. 

“Often” can be pronounced with and without the “t”.

Interesting things to note:
1. The pronunciation with “t” is a reversion to the 15th century pronunciation
2. Most British and American speakers prefer reading “often” with the “t”
3. If you check your dictionaries now, they will list both pronunciations.
