"How do you pronounce the words food and good?"

What other ways are there to pronounce them? :S

    Best description of trousers ever:
    "the outer garment for the lower half of the body, with individual leg parts reaching to the ankle"
    :lol

    I did the quiz myself, and as a non-native speaker was "Way off. Your answers didnt fit here at all" - which makes sense. Most overlap with the south, Cambridge and Bath as the closest fits.

    "How do you pronounce the words food and good?"

    "Food" has a long vowel [fu:d], "good" has a short vowel [gud]. ;)
