People of the UK, how do you pronounce "Sandwich?" Do you pronounce the W?
Norwich="nor'itch," Greenwich="gren'itch," Smithwick's="smith'icks," and sandwich=? Is it "san'itch," or what?
I lived in the UK for a long time, and most people there called a sandwich a "sarnie," or a "butty." The remainder called it a "sandwich," with the "d" pronounced.
I suspect that if "sandwich" were spelled "sanwich," then it would be pronounced "sanich."
You are quite right, all the places you've mentined have a silent 'w' in Sandwich the 'w' is sounded.
No, in the UK we most definitely sound the 'w' in sandwich. This is because the 'd' is also sounded, and the 'w' follows the 'd'.
