  1. 1. How do you pronounce drawer (as in a chest of drawers)

    • rhymes with paw
    • rhymes with store
    • other, please elaborate

I asked my DH (who is from the Philly area) whether he pronounces "war" and "wore" as homophones, and when he said them, there is a very slight difference. Not as much as when I say them (mine is definitely closer to rhyming with far/car/star though not quite). But definitely not homophones.


Now I'm curious- which part of the country are folks from who pronounce them as homophones?
