Different from the vowel in _saw_? (It would be interesting!) Which of the two do you hear in _water_? In _talk_? There's a lot of other dialectologically important words. E. g.: Half/calf:palm/calm:ask/bask/pass:grant/can't(:father):part/heart; doer:poor:your:store:lord/board:sort:talk:soft/often:dog/log:lock/stock; pure:fewer; dew:due:do; roll:coal; creek ("/" stands for 'or', ":" means 'as opposed to') - to mention just a few ones interesting for the development of their (historical) vowels in the *new* dialects. (That is, I don't mean *real old* dialects that can have different vowels in e.g. _steal_ vs. _wheel_ or _stone_ vs. _own_). Basilius
