Oh, and as to where I am from, I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I believe mine is [smQl dQl]. I tend to round a lot of my vowel sounds. This is especially true for the "O" sounds.

I am from the Pacific Northwest.

My pronunciation is analogous to b), but I have l-vocalisation, so phonetically, it's [smQU dQU] or [smOU dOU]. I'm from Ottawa, Canada.

e) [smo:l dOl] (i.e. THOUGHT vowel, LOT vowel).

I think SMALL should rhyme with DOLL just like HOT should share the same vowel with DOG....Oh no, low back merger again and again...
