Yes, but phonemically the same, which is probably why I forgot it. It's a
regular modification before /l/ in the same syllable (e.g. consider
_core_ vs _call_). Basically tighter, with lips more protruded.

As in _saw_, since these do not precede [l].

All of these are [a:] to me.
I'll rearrange your second list so that the words in each row have the
same vowel or dipthong unless stated otherwise.
