Subject: Re: ornery
I pronounce "ornery" with three syllables AND I pronounce both r's. I
don't understand how it is that I've seen it spelled "awnry" which I
assume is another pronunciation of the same word. Has anyone else seen
this spelling? Or have other info.?

Do they pronounce both r's ?
Does anyone know why/when the first r is not pronounced?
