* If place in an English-speaking country ends with the suffix -cester (as opposed to -chester or -caster) you know it's going to be irregular. That includes American places that have inherited the irregular pronunciation from the English places.

*** That includes all ''three'' Gloucester places in New Jersey: Gloucester County, Gloucester City and Gloucester Township. The latter two are not actually in Glocuester County.
*** The Gloucestershire Airplane Corporation (one of the predecessors of British Aerospace) changed its name into Gloster as it expected foreign contracts. "Gloster" is pretty much the phonetic ortography for "Gloucester".

* ''Series/TheColbertReport'' (Cole-BARE RE-pore). In one of the [[RealTrailerFakeMovie early]] [[{{Defictionalization}} adverts]] for the show, Colbert tries to justify it by saying that [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch "It's French, bitch!"]] Colbert himself has said that the pronunciation is a way for us to tell the difference between his real personality (by pronouncing the T) and his stage personality (not pronouncing it). However, in reality, his family used both pronunciations; Colbert had started using the alternative (T-less) pronunciation in college, using it before, during, and after the show's run.

In Irish usage, the "t" is pronounced. Stephen Colbert is of Irish ancestry, so the "t" pronunciation would have been how most of his recent ancestors said it, but the "t"-less version doesn't come from nowhere.[[/note]]
