Subject: Re: pronunciation note

Yes, I have heard "albeit" used, and pronounced correctly. Unfortunately,

entirely too many paid announcers (and therefore supposed professionals)

don't know what the hell they're saying sometimes. Two of the more

egregious ones I've heard: in Indiana, a radio announcer referred to the

"B'nei Birth", and a TV anchor in Calif. noted the death of the author of

"Waiting for Godot" pronounced to rhyme with got it. Feh! (I don't watch

him anymore.)
