I can't recall anyone, of any educational, social, or economic background, ever using "suite" to refer to anything other than, perhaps, a musical composition. Even the radio and TV commercials from furniture stores consistently use "sut." It does seem that, somewhere in my deep, dark past, probably in another state, I occasionally heard "suite" in that context, but it has been a very long time. For my own part, I have given in to the overwhelmingly popular usage, though I mentally cringe when- ever I do it--but, as they used to say, "When in Rome (City, Ind.), ........" jmiller franklin college (ind.)
