    There is a technical term, which escapes me at the moment, that describes this; voicing words as you write. The signifier 'Wednesday' (the word) is intrinsically tied to an audio pattern (the sound 'wed-nes-day') to signify a day in the week; in the same way that the word Wednesday is made up of particular letters in a sequence.

    I've always pronounced it 'Wed-ens-day', and until fairly recently I've usuall written it 'Wedensday'.
    Then again, when I was real little I pronounced 'Thursday' as 'thirsty'. Man, I had trouble with those two. "I'm so Thursday!" "Errr?"
