Here is the correct usage "It snowed overnight, therefore it has snown overnight." ~Iain

Snow is a regular verb:- snow, snowed, snowed.

In a book I read yesterday the BrE past tense of dream dreamt was used frequently. Can anybody out there say 'dreamt' without at least a hint of a 'p' between the 'm' and the 't'? There're 13,000 google cites for 'dreampt', so it's not just my dialect.

Well, I've spent the last couple of minutes gritting my teeth and saying 'last night I dreamT I went to Mandalay again', and it's not easy.

Weird, isn't it. There's no hint of a 'p' in 'Semtex', for example.

I think I might hear one. There's a word for this sort of thing, but I'm not sure where my Dictionary of Linguistics is just at the moment...

But there IS in "Semt", ain't there?
The EXtension allows the 't' to start a new syllable instead of having to sit around messing up the old one.

At first I thought I pronounced `Semtex' differently than you, but, indeed, there is no hint of the sound of the letter `p' in the way I say it. Quite weird!
