Do you pronounce tube as toob or choob?
And Tuesday as toosday or choosday.
And duty as dooty or jooty?

Or do them pronounce them differently?
How are they supposed to be pronounced?

I guess the second options on each, but not quite.

Pronouncing the T is an american thing (or maybe just New York)

Thanks guys. I don't think I stick to saying each word just one way, but noticed other people pronouncing them differently. Still not sure which is the correct way grin

Alternatives are American pronunciations. Also, know someone from Derby who pronounces them that way as well.

Ok, ok, I see the pedants have corrected the spelling of the pronunciations. But, I know what OP means, I think
