Of the top 5k words of US English, 145 had the "awe" sound in them. I checked 3 talking dictionaries to see how the top 60% of words were spoken for awe-dropping.  Results show that females are the most prone to swapping "ah" for what should be "awe" according to phonetic notation. https://justpaste.it/dictionaryawedrops
