Lately, I've been noticing a particular phenomenon in speech, in which the word "particularly" is pronounced more or less as "partickerly" or "partickly."

It turns out I'm not the only one to notice this, as Mark Liberman has an excellent, and much more in-depth description of the phenomenon at Language Log, with a ton of excellent audio.
