At this very moment, the _Diane Rehm_ show on American NPR ( is
interviewing a British author (woman); I missed the introduction so don't
know her social or academic background, but to me she sounds RP or perhaps
Oxbridge with very precise enunciation.  In any case, she is very clearly
pronouncing "were" as something between [wE@] ~ [we@].
