Only if you quote it out of context.

My dad was a lieutenant commander for a while in the navy, so I know it's Left-tenant.

Tell me about it. I remember something my A Level English Language lecturer once told me as an example of how odd the English language can be. He explained how the letters "GHOTI" could in fact be read as "FISH".

The way I see it, the British Army doesn't have lootenants and the American Army doesn't have leftenants, so it'd be a bit rude to get that deliberately wrong if you were speaking to someone holding that rank. For fictional characters go with what they're called in canon (e.g. If you say leftenant Worf you sound like a prick. For a phrase like "trusted lieutenant" I would say "lef."

Normally the context makes the pronunciation obvious.

The word in a vacuum I would pronounce "loo" (although you wouldn't be able to hear me)

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

I'd get it wrong just to piss off the squaddies.

I guess that is, technically, praxis.
