Pronunciation of "смотрите"

  • 24

I've heard "смотрите" spoken and it sounds like the ending has a "ч". Are there scenarios where "т" sounds like "ч"?

UPDATE: I first heard it in the movie Transporter 3 in the scene where cops arrive at a bridge and are pointing out the Audi being pulled out of the water. One of them said "смотрите там" and it sounded like a "ч" at the end.

I went looking for examples and found this one (https://forvo.com/word/смотрите/#ru) and the third one sounded very much like the movie.

That was probably just the speaker's personal accent.

There should be no "ч" sound in "смотрите", and I can't think of a single Russian word where "т" would sound like "ч".

A personal accent ... or probably that was "смотришь"...
