Conversely, in the English here, historical /ʊr/ tends to be tensed to /ur/ except for in very few words (e.g. Moorland Rd. here in the Milwaukee area being an example that comes to mind) where it becomes /ɔr/, except when preceded by /j/ or a consonant palatalized by historical /j/, as /jʊr/ normally becomes /jər/ outside of careful speech, wherein it may be tensed to /jur/, except for your and you're, which when careful are /jɔr/.

For me, "poor" is /pOr\/, "cure" is /kj3`/ and "manure" is /m@.nu.r\=/.

You didn't ask for more, but it's monosyllabic [ˈmo̞ɚ̯], unlike [ˈmo̞wɚ], which is always bisyllabic. The [o̞] in the latter is more fronted, but not as far forward as [ɵ̞]. Similarly, there's some affrication on /dr/, but nothing as pronounced as what I see transcribed as [dʒɹ] or [dɹ̝ɹ].

[ɻʁ] is actually coarticulated, but the X-SAMPA to IPA converter I am using does not handle tie bars well.

I've finally fully accepted that my pronunciations are really inconsistent, so I'm not sure if there's even any point in me posting in this thread at all. Like, I watched some shitty videos I've uploaded on Youtube and realised that my pronunciations of most words are literally so inconsistent that I can't go one minute without saying them differently. :roll:

PS: Am I the only one who feels weird pronouncing cherubim with /t͡ʃ/ rather than [kʰ]? The latter just feels more natural, probably because in Finnish the singular is kerubi, but also in all the source languages Latin, Greek and Hebrew it has a /k/.

The main difference for me between the two is that in "rat trap", I actually pronounce the /t/, while in "rat rap", it's just a glottal stop. (virtually all of my word-final /t/s are glottal stops, unless I'm really trying to emphasize it or something)
