That is because the only way to call them IS 'pee-tree'. Mother fucking tree stars and shit!

 

Also, if you listen very closely, you will hear a 'th' where a 'ph' should be. Point and laugh if you find it.

Gif. There's no fucking other reason to say Jif aside from "But the creator calls it like that". You know why he called it like that? Because of a fucking peanut butter brand, not because he made English study. /Rants mode over

 

Kilo-me-der or Kilo-meh-der, depends of the mood.

 

Of-ten or Ofen, also depends on the mood.

Apparently, it's common for native English speakers to lose certain sounds in specific words. Like a lot of people pronounce 'rainbow' as 'raimbow' because of the way we move our lips. Hard t sounds are often lost too. I read an article about speech perception and pronunciation that talks about why we change sounds or lose hard consonants. Let me see if I can dig it up, it was really interesting.
