It's probably [a], which is a common realization of -er; non-syllabic [a] is likewise a common realization of -r that is not -er. -- John Cowan "Mr. Lane, if you ever wish anything that I can do, all you will have to do will be to send me a telegram asking and it will be done." "Mr. Hearst, if you ever get a telegram from me asking you to do anything, you can put the telegram down as a forgery."
