With apologies for straying still a bit further from American dialects,
the same development has occurred in some Dutch dialects (e.g. standard
kerk [kErIk] 'church' becomes [karIk]) and in some Low Saxon ("Low
German") dialects in Germany.
Double apologies from me. Peter McGraw mentions the Dutch [karIk], to
which I would append Swabian Karrich (for Kirche 'church').
