I've been an Australian English speaker my whole life but this was pointed out to me recently. Apparently I've been pronouncing "where" differently or incorrectly? Most of the people around me pronounce it this way:
/wɛː/ (or like this: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/where)
However I found myself pronouncing it this way:
/wɪəː/ (like saying "hear" but replacing the first letter with the usual /w/ sound)
Example of both: https://vocaroo.com/i/s0DYaRzH5heN
Is this an Australian English thing? I only know of one other person who says it like I do. Or am I just pronouncing it wrong?
