Date: Tue, 3 Oct 1995 09:44:54 EDT From: Undetermined origin c/o LISTSERV maintainer Subject: pronunciation note I happened to notice that the traffic reporter this morning used the word "albeit" (which I tend to think of as somewhat archaic), but he pronounced it all-bite. It's possible he was reading it off someone else's text and guessing, but it's also possible that this is how some people are pronouncing it now. I _think_ he's from the Midwest, based on how he pronounces "Newark," but that's only an inference. Has anyone else heard this pronunciation? For that matter, has anyone else heard (rather than read) the word "albeit" in conversation or this sort of broadcast recently? Vicki Rosenzweig vr%acmcr.uucp[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] New York, NY
