I live in Australia, and I recently had a moment of confusion when talking with someone who had merged the words ball and bowl. They pronounced it something like /bɔl/. They said fall, small, wall, role, and whole all the same way, but said tall with the (in my speech) normal /oː/.

Has anyone seen anything like this before? Is it new or have I just completely missed it?
