I'm not sure what this word is, but like 私 has one kanji but 発音 has two kanji, and there is like a boundary between the two kanji for the 読み方、a boundary between はつ and おん. and this can affect the way things are pronounce like 発見 the boundary causes the つ to be pronounce as っ before voiceless consonants like the け. but only at those kanji boundary's, so like 使う (which has one kanji) isn't affected by this phonetic rule.
