Spotted in the New York Times... This atrocity must not stand!

I’ve always said /əˈku.tɹə.mənt/ ... This is odd. I usually prefer American spellings, because I feel they conform better to modern pronunciation (e.g. center over centre). Maybe in this case my pronunciation is influenced by my having studied French, and that’s why I’d prefer “accoutrement.”
