comment “negotiate” with /s/
Could you develop on "the word's earlier pronunciation"? I heard this way of pronouncing it in an episode of In our Time (BBC). It was not a way of hyper-correcting, as it was pronounced like that several times (which is why I noticed it).

comment “negotiate” with /s/
I guess it's something along the lines of -tia- being pronounced /sɪe/. I've heard initiate pronounced with /s/ too, but I wonder if this pronounciation goes for all words with similar spelling.

Thank you for your answer. Could you clarify your position on the use of "though" in formal writing, though? Avoid it as a general rule?
