Hello, Rachel.
“aw” and “ar” sound exactly the same: [ɑː].
Actually, the [ɔː] sound can be found in words like “or”.

Thanks Rachel for your awesome videos! These are the best esplanation of the pronounciation I've ever seen.
Is there a a video on your chanel about the differentiation between long vs short vowels? I can't nail them. I know which ones are long, and which ones are short but still I fail to produce a natural rhythm in speech. In my mothertongue the vowels are not differentiated by length. If you could explain this I would be extremely grateful! Greetings from Russia.

Finally I find the answers to the difference between the two vowels and why in American there is a change which so confuses me . I have been looking for the answers for such a long time, you resolve the mystery in your every word of explanation, thank you, Rachel, the only best, not one of ………

I have a question: I can pronounce the stressed version of AW perfectly fine, but when I use it in fast speech or in unstressed words it kind of naturally becomes the UH as in BUTTER vowel for me. Mostly in words like "on, " "off, " "wanted" — they sound like uhn, uhf, wunned respectively. I don't do this for words that are often stressed (e.g. call, law, mall...). Is this ok or am I pronouncing them wrong? Thank you!

hi Rachel
in BRE there are ɔ: (long) and ɔ(short), what´s the equivalent sound in AME for ɔ(short) as in ROCK, POT? Would it be-> ɒ?
