Mensagem:  One of us is misunderstanding the other.  I'm commenting on the "tower" pronunciation of the word "tour".  I only recall one pronunciation for "tour" and it doesn't come close to "tower". What are you talking about? - Dale


According to Merriam-Webster, the word "tour" can only be pronounced "tower" when it means "one's turn in an orderly schedule" (shift).....
