Okay, the office pronunciation-cop jumped me on this word, but the dictionaries list ALL of the above (or they've been given to us by other NukeWorkers)...so we want to know: What is the norm in the nuclear community?

Still not as 'manly' as your guy, but maybe both of mine together could take him in a cage-match?  ;)

From http://www.answers.com


in si·tu (ĭn sē'tū, sī'-, sĭch'ū)
adv. & adj.
In the original position.

[Latin in sitū : in, in + sitū, ablative of situs, place.]


sit·u·ate (sĭch'ū-āt')
tr.v., -at·ed, -at·ing, -ates.
To place in a certain spot or position; locate.
To place under particular circumstances or in a given condition.
adj. Archaic. (-ĭt, -āt')
Situated.

[Middle English, from Medieval Latin situāre, situāt-, to place, from Latin situs, location.]



Dang English (esp. that 'Middle' one!) - what do they know about pronunciation?!?!  ;)
