    Default cellar-British vs American accent

    Is there any difference between British accent and American accent in respect of "cellar" as follows:

    cellar noun - pronunciation in the British English Dictionary & Thesaurus - Cambridge Dictionaries Online


    I couldn't hear them clearly.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Does it mean that the pronunciation of "Cel....." is the same between BrE and AmE?

    It is phonemically the same in most dialects of the two varieties.
