I have been noticing some of my colleagues (primarily from India) pronouncing the word "only" as though it were "one-ly" or "wunly" (/ˈwʌnliː/). Is this a common pronunciation of the word?
I don't see it as a listed pronunciation in any dictionaries I consulted.
- Macmillan Dictionary
- Longman Pronunciation Dictionary
- Oxford Lexico
- Collins Dictionary
- Oxford Learners Dictionary
They all give vowel-initial pronunciations—none with an initial /w/. Are there any dictionaries that countenance a "wunly" pronunciation of "only"?
