Consult the forematter in DARE or The Pronunciation of English in
the Atlantic States (PEAS) on the distribution of the palatal glide before
/uw/ after alveolars in American varieties (not "dialects", please) of
English. I, like Natalie and most Southerners, use /tyuwb/, /nyuw/, etc.
(but not for words like "noon", where the /uw/ comes from /ow/).
