Can you also give me the general region your accent comes from?

The word: Lure (example: fishing lure)

Do you pronounce it more like "lew-er" or more like "ler"? (Hard to spell how it sounds ^.^)

I catch hell for my pronunciation of this word lol

Well, there's a dilemma here. I know people who say "lew-er", some who say "ler" and other who pronounce it "lor." Here in TN, i hear "Lor" or "ler" more than "lew-er." I get what you're saying and it is just one of those words that is diverse, everyone says it differently but knows exactly what is being talked about. lol.
