Soldering question?

Is soldering pronounced [ SAW - TERING ] ? I was told this, but it didn't make sense to me that it isn't pronounced how it is spelled.

Depends where you come from, - In the home of the English language it is pronounced Sold-er-ing

In the USA, for some reason, Sod-er-ing

Are you from England?
No, but I do tend to prefer "british" english over "american" english (although I stay well short of the accent)
I also pronounce aluminium as Al-you-mini-uhm rather than Ah-lumi-num

By the way, I just looked it up on dictionary.com and they use the american version without the "L" sound
Very old, very bad joke . . .

"Where did you get that accent?"

"Eton, old sausage."

"Well you'd better stop eating old sausages."
