O'Neill" Subject: Re: supervisor/coupon I've never heard /sju/ in "supervisor" either, but the issue calls to mind a discussion I recently had with some friends of mine. One of my friends pointed out to me on Halloween that while everyone else in our group was using the /u/ pronunciation of "costume," I was using the /ju/ pronunciation. It led to further discussion, and I realized that I use /ju/ in: new/news/newspaper/knew stew dew (but not "do") etc. But I'm also not terribly consistent with these pronunciations, with the exception of "costume." I'm led to the belief that these are recent acquisitions, but I have no recollection of any change over time.
