fuck et al.[edit]

Unless I'm missing something, that would be 'Rhymes: -ʌk'. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:30, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Only for some accents. Stephen MUFC
But, which in which accents would it rhyme 'Rhymes: -ʊk'? Mglovesfun (talk) 16:33, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
Northern English, Scottish, Irish and certain American accents. Stephen MUFC 16:37, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm not convinced, I live in Northern England, not too far from Scotland and I haven't heard 'fuck' to rhyme with 'book'. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:44, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, I'm from Northern England too and I never hear it not rhyme with "fuck" and most cases where Southerners pronoun words with "ʌ" Northerners use "ʊ".
  • I'm with Stephen here. See the entry for fook, which is relavent. --Rockpilot 20:58, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
    In that case, we still need to qualify the pronunciations — indicate which accents they're used in. I've tried to do so. - -sche (discuss) 01:28, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
I'm not from England obviously but I worked with a guy from Northern England who we joked about (because of his accent) that "he'll grab some mooney and will go to the poob". :) --Anatoli (обсудить) 00:57, 2 December 2011 (UTC)

Twenty[edit]

I saw a doubtful edit made by user Fête (talkcontribs). Can you confirm that the three pronunciations deleted are right? Ĉiuĵaŭde (talk) 14:24, 1 January 2013 (UTC)

If they are right, they look like American dialectical pronunciations and having so many seems a bit redundant. Stephen MUFC (talk) 17:25, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
