    intuitive

    I'm interested in the pronunciation of the word "intuitive":
    /ɪnˈtjuːɪtɪv/
    /ɪnˈtjuːətɪv/
    /ɪnˈtʃuːɪtɪv/
    (and /ɪnˈtuːɪtɪv/ as NAmE)
    One of the dictionaries offers only the third pronunciation, while others offer the first and/or the second.I would like to know if the third pronunciation (with "tʃ") is common, or which one you prefer.

    All three pronunciations are quite common in BrE.
