I looked the word governance up in dictionary and all dictionaries state its pronunciation is
[ˈgʌvərnəns]. However, I have several dictionaries that have audio and I can clearly hear they are actually saying
[ˈgʌvərnənts]. The ending sound is the same as the word
its. Is there a rule for this pronouncing behavior? Thanks.
