TR Cluster pronunciation AmE?
In American English the TR cluster is pronounced as CHR like word (Tree).
My question is about word (Industry), there's an "S" before the TR, so it is an ST cluster, so the question is, do we still pronounce it as CHR or True T because of the "S"?

I pronounce in dus tree not in duh stree. STR (as in street or strewn) can be a cluster, but I would not put it like that in the words industry or industrial. there is a break between the s and the tr.

I don't know what language program you are using, but the TR in industry and tree is the same, but I cannot think of any word where an S before T or TR changes to a sound similar to an American English pronunciation of a word with the letter combination CHR.

The word "tree" is not pronounced "chree."
