William: Hmmm, I know! In that clip we heard a soldier /ˈsoʊtər/telling his men to hold their horses before he started firing weapons.
Li: But nowadays, I am guessing, you don't need to be a soldier
/ˈsoʊər/ to use this phrase, right?

Checking many dictionaries haven’t helped me figure out the first pronunciation of the word soldier in that clip. It seems to me /ˈsoʊtər/. I don't say that this is a regional accent. Native English speakers will decide whether it voiceless stop /ˈsoʊtər/ or /ˈsoʊər/ voiced alveopalatal affricate. Will you clear it up, please?
