Well this may sound a bit absurd but I just checked the pronunciation of indict in my speaking Franklin dictionary and I was shocked that the letter C is silent. Also it's pronunciation is the same as that of indite. Please can you confirm this for me. This is really stupid to ask this on this forum but looks like I am giving this forum more precedence than Franklin. (Is it really stupid???)
