I noticed earlier in the thread that some-one said they pronounce Tuesday like the number, so "Toosday". I haven't heard this before so it surprised me a little. Is this common for others and if so, where is it pronounced this way? I would say "Tewsday" (like ewes or few), or if you have a very strong ocker accent you may say "Chewsday" (*shudders*).
My other question is over how people say the fraction 3/4. I always say three-quarters. I don't think I've ever heard anyone in Australia say anything other that "quarter" in reference to all n/4 fractions (happy to be corrected, could be regional). I think that I have seen one or two American posters write three-fourths. Is this common? Which would you say?
