Frankly, I'm more curious as to why there's an "L" in solder, since it isn't pronounced. It is with bolder, colder, folder, holder... Maybe they thought there would be too much confusion with "sod", a kind of soil. Yet, nobody worried about "lead" (the metal, versus the verb). The wonderfully illogical language called English, at your service.
I pronounce the L...

SOLL-DA
Does anyone understand what you're saying? If someone asked me to hand them what you said, I'd probably hand them a can of Coke.
