Subject: /sut/

I agree with Jerry Miller about "suite" being pronounced as /sut/ in

Indiana. I spent a great deal of time in various furniture stores at the

end of last year. All of the salespeople I dealt with pronounced /sut/

though I normally say /swit/ having been brought up in Oregon where

it is pronounced this way when "suite" means for "suite" meaning bedroom set.
