How are you supposed to say/pronounce 'Soften'?
I'm from UK, and I've only ever heard it said 'sof un'. But watching youtube video's with my daughter on slime making, most people say it 'sof tun'.
Which got me thinking, you say the T in 'Softer' but never herd it said in 'soften'
Which is correct? Or is it just pronounced differently in America?

I'm American, and I have never heard the T pronounced in "soften".

The t is usually silent but in some dialects it is pronounced.

It's like "often"-- no t.

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary (of American English language), it should be pronounced "sȯ-fən". The "t" is silent.

Yes the 't' is silent in soften in the UK. Incidentally I have never heard anyone pronounce February correctly. I lapse also.
