Is the morning~mourning, horse~hoarse, border~boarder distinction still made
in north America? Is it relegated to a region, and if so, is it part of the
regional standard? Also, if it is restricted to a region, is there any
generational differences, ie, do the older speakers maintain the distinction
and the younger speakers merge the two sounds?
