Subject: Re: tour, tore
The observation made me think about my own pronunciation and I realize that I
used to say tour (when living in New Jersey and New York), but I now have to
admit that I pronounce the word to rhyme with tore. I wonder if my twelve year
stay in Western PA has anything to do with this change?
