My dia/idiolect: Agree with all those. I have [O] /O/ in the *starred* words in the next list, [A]/a/ in the rest:

These also rhyme with the word in question with (my) [A] /a/: squat, squash, squab, squabble, waddle, twaddle, swaddle/swaddling [clothes]. s/t/d+w, (s)k+w seems to exhaust the possibilities, aside from foreign words (we've had this discussion before......) wattle and daub: [wAtl=] [dOb] It appears the WIQ is an outright obscenity mainly in the US......
