Pronunciation[edit]

Do we have a source for the pronunciation pronounced /ˈstuːbɪn/? The vowel in the second syllable is arguable, but I've never heard it pronounced with the accent on the first syllable. Powers T 21:09, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking the same thing. Everyone I know says stu-BEN county. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.218.86.48 (talk) 23:37, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I changed it to put the accent on the ben. I grew up there/family lives there and that's what they say. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 192.245.194.253 (talk) 21:12, 1 September 2009 (UTC)

Also I found a source for stu-BEN: http://www.stargazetterealestate.com/Community/NY/Steuben/index.html
