My parents (Fergus Falls MN, Northern Iowa) said 'bedroom /swit/' as did
their friends, most of whom had high school, or less, education.
Northern MMontana to Central Washington State, always /swit/. I remember
the first time I heard /sut/ from some 'country people' who moved into
the neighborhood. I thought at the time it was marked form, though of
course I had no label. I think they were from someplace "way South,"
which to my group meant, perhaps, Oklahoma.
