I'm not sure anybody's ever put it this way before, but if this is a
classic connundrum of "Is this a [true] dialect pronunciation or [merely]
the 'error' of spelling pronunciation?", there seems to be another
question lurking underneath: Can we as a literate society productively
consider "spelling pronunciation" as a legitimate dialect of English?
