Full,food, course, orders, record, cost, job, you, fool, wood, too, book, port, pot.

Which sound does each word belong to?

??? Words don't belong to sounds.

The choices below are pretty much irrelevant.

(a) /u/

(b)/u:/

(c)/p/

(d)/c/

fʊl, fu:d, kɔrs, ɔrdərz, ˈrɛkərd|rɪˈkɔrd, kɔst, dʒa:b|dʒɒb, ju:, fu:l, wʊd, tu:, bʊk, pɔrt, pa:t|pɒt

/ɒ/ is exclusively British.

CalifJim/ɒ/ is exclusively British.

What does that refer to?

anonymousWhat does that refer to?

The sound represented by /ɒ/ is not used in American English.

Thus, for /pa:t|pɒt/,

/pa:t/ is the American pronunciation (or /pat/, actually), and /pɒt/ is the British pronunciation.
