I hear "foward" for forward in the (AE) speech of people (who generally
give /r/ its r-ness) more and more these days.  Except for "Fuggeddaboudit"
I can't think of other places where this is happening.  When forecastles
might have turned up in day-to-day speech, I understand it was pronounced
"fo'c'sle", but I wouldn't know from my own experience!

W stands for >:<  War ____Waste___Wiretaps____Witchhunts  >:<
