#209841 - 02/28/13 10:04 AM teat
The word "teat" is usually pronounced "tit" as presented by Websters Collegiate Dictionary and others, but sometimes it is pronounced "teet" by intellectuals including, recently, Dr Charles Krauthammer on a national television network. Dr Krauthammer's use of the English language is usually masterful, so I doubt he made a simple mistake.
Is "teet" an acceptable alternative pronunciation? If so, where does it come from?
