I checked the dictionary for the transcriptions of these two words, but it was the same!
I do believe that drower should end with "Shwa", am I right? :wink:
They aren't in my dictionary, Latoof. Do you mean 'draw', 'drawer'?
If so, AmE is rhotic, so the latter is ending is pronounced /-(ə)r/, that is with a terminal 'r' sound, with or without the schwa before it (Southern dialect, however, is an exception, although it is more an /a/ than an /ə/).
I will leave BrE to a Brit member-- I don't know whether the terminal 'r' is pronounced or not there.
To me, both draw and drawer sound the same. ;)
Yes I meant draw and drawer.
I am sorry for this mistake.
Can you tell me in what way; I mean do both have the same ending?
