With my Texas accent, I usually pronounce it "are" XD

The sentence "Are our R's right?" sounds wierd, and I've had to say it before. XD

I pronouce it "HOUR". I know that's right. But no matter how you pronouce it, you are able to spell it right. XD
I just hope someone doesn't pronouce it "OWL".

I pronounce it "hour," I guess. o_O I've always been taught that the two words are homophones, so that's probably why. XP

Our, hmm. I pronounce it like hour when I'm saying a sentence slowly. I pronounce it like are when I'm saying a sentence swiftly.
