Date: Thu, 9 Mar 1995 11:55:00 CST From: Tom Murray Subject: Re: suite /sut/ Does anyone have any data, formal or informal, on *suite* pronounced /sut/, as in "My parents just bought a new bedroom /sut/"? It occurs more frequently tha n you might think, and not just among speakers with relatively low levels of ed ucation. (My mother-in-law, for example, who has a Master's Degree and many ye ars of experience both in public education and in business, regularly uses the pronunciation, as does my wife, an attorney.) Beth Simon and I are collecting attestations, and would appreciate any help that readers of this list can provi de. --Tom Murray (TEM[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]KSUVM.KSU.EDU)
