Bagby Atwood, though uncredited). I'm a /yuw/ speaker (I don't like them furrin IPA symbols), but have been amused at newscasters who get things mixed up and report the /nyuwn nuwz/. I thought that was a hypercorrection, but have found some of my east-coast students who have this (to me) reversal as a norm. Rudy Troike
