Term:
pronunciation of SV skit  
by atemp (US), 2021-03-19, 17:51  like dislike  Spam?  
I am writing a drama character whose Swedish father has been known to say, "That is a crock of skit." And by skit he is not referring to a short comical or satirical theatrical presentation.

But skit as commonly pronounced seems to break SV pronunciation rules. To my EN-tuned ear it sounds like "whidth." What is the deal? Is some kind of polite evasion or euphony at play?
