VW, So, do you pronounce the words ''talk'', ''water'', ''walk'', ''chalk'', ''stalk'', ''wall'', ''hall'', ''mall'',
''ball'' etc. with your ''caught'' vowel or with your ''law'' vowel. [I think you said that your ''caught'' vowel and your ''law'' vowel were different.]

Do you pronounce ''Mary'', ''merry'' and ''marry'' the same?

Oh hell, now I'm getting confused. Pas (first time I've heard that word) Pause and Paws are close, but when I said them to myself just now, they did sound slightly different. Mary, Merry, Marry are the same.

I pronounce ''fawn'' and ''faun'' differently.
