LOT-CLOTH Split

Older Sothern English accents, including conservative RP: rarely heard now.
Much more apparent in East-Coast American accentss, where LOT Unrounding () does not affect all LOT words;
b t words such as cloth, dog take  the THOUGHT vowel

This is a paralled develpment to the BATH-TRAP Split. ()
