    First of all, you should use "pronounce", not "pronoun", they have different meanings.

    war

    British English Pronunciation - wɔː
    American English Pronunciation - wɔːr

    Hi,


    'War' is pronounced like 'walk' , 'four' , 'bored' etc.
    The phonitic transcription is as under;

    War = / wɔː(r)/

    Thanks

    walk is not pronounced that way: /ˈwɑ:k/

    In 'British' dictionaries, or a dictionary which gives RP pronunciation, they will also give /'wɔ:k/ as an example.
