I’m from Alabama and I say ‘droor’.  I’ve heard some peopel say “draw-ore” because of the souther accent’s habbit of adding sylables and making your ears bleed (I don’t have much of an accent, thankfully).

@jadlnc:  “Wooder” is soo funny to me!  People around here say it 3 different ways:

“W-or-ter” –I think I pronouce it this way. lol

“W-are-ter”

“Wadd-er”

@MissCountryGirl727:  I guess I say WAH-der. But if I say it slow I pronounce the “T” like a “T” WAH-ter. Wooder is so strange to me.

@Aquaria:  LMAO! Love this post! I pronounce it “draws” and I hail from South Georgia/Alabama by way of Florida!

 

I shall use it in a sentence…”Oops, I put my draws on inside out!” Yee haw! LOL

I’ve read that word so many times in this thread that I don’t think I could say it at all. It doesn’t even sound like a real word anymore ๐Ÿ˜›
