So much for the standards of dictionary.com - the lowest common

And on-topic for r.a.p , WTF is a 'recerd' ?

That's kind of a special case. My father would always say "rowt 95"
or "rowt one" but "root 66" because 66 was so famous under that pronounciation.
He was a native speaker from Pittsburgh where they don't quite speak
standardized "midwestern" American English but they are fairly close.

Midwestern - hee hee! The entire midwest is in the eastern half of the

This is a 7-bit, text only group so Usenet strips off the upper bit,

Says the poster whose news reader just sent the data as 8 bit encoded,
with a content type of text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1 (Copied and pasted
from your post's headers.)

The top bit is being stripped off by an incorrect setting in your news
reader. You could, of course, use a standards compliamt newsreader such
a Thunderbird. That shows the content perfectly until bits of it get
mangled by Forte Agent 1.5/32.451 in your machine. Welcome to the 21st
Century. ;-)

You might find the entry for the word, route, in the Century Dictionary,
interesting. Follow the link I gave, if you can, then search that
dictionary for the word, route. Then click on the hyperlink, ‘jpeg’, for a
photograph of the page on which ‘route’ is.

Britannica dot com says,

“Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia, dictionary of American English that is
generally regarded as one of the greatest ever produced. The first edition
(1889–91) contained six volumes; … [A] 12-volume edition was produced in
1911. Long after it went out of print, the Century Dictionary and
Cyclopedia remained one of the most valuable references for etymologists,
lexicographers, and historians. …”

language, I personally prefer the "french" pronunciation also in English.

Well, I just want to hear any recording of "Route 66" where they pronounce

Pronouncing "route" as "rout" aurally distinguishes it from "root," which has
no pronunciation ambiguity.
