I learned how to distinguish cot and caught or I guess you could say I learned how to produce another vowel quality

It's weird because I can only do it when the other person does it. If I'm reading and think about it I can produce that vowel as well. I'm like a vacuum of knowledge :lol: :)

I was curious how it looked on paper though so this helps me figure it out :hmm:

Yeah, English /ɔ/ is way more close/rounded than the transcription suggests, at least in England and Australia (though there are exceptions in the UK, there are regions where it's an open vowel without much rounding).

Return to “English”
