  • In the modern noun sense "obtaining or issuing of permits", I pronounce this word /ˈpɜːmɪtɪŋ/, as I think it's coined directly off the noun 'permit'. I even incline to think it should be spelt 'permiting' accordingly—but now that I do so, I'm afraid to suggest it.

    The recent revision of the OED does not recognize the distinction, and just gives the verbal pronunciation /pəˈmɪtɪŋ/.
