the accent

The accent here is the weirdest.
I don't know if you were following my problems with being "axed" a question.
Coco was at the playground with his new Spiderman (reversible!!) costume and a little girl asked to see his "max." But even she realized how weird that sounded and tried it again, "ma-a-x."
Poor thing.
The dropped t is a secondary peeve. I don't mind it so much in others, but for some reason it bugs me when Madge says "ki'en."
This week I heard an even more extreme version of it when a lady referred to a "co-hang-guh" (dropped t, overenunciated g).
