In the verb 'to indict', which means 'to accuse formally', that is to make a charge in a court of law, and its related noun indictment, the letter '-c-' is silent. Its effect is to make sure that the vowel is pronounced as in 'eye' or 'I': 'to 'ind-EYE-t', IPA: /ɪn ˈdaɪt/; 'ind-EYE-tment', /ɪn ˈdaɪt mənt/.

The pronunciation of interdict is not the same.
