Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't there a short vowel in "odd" and a long vowel in "applaud"?

Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

I have no idea wth you just said, but both end with "awd" (the sound, not the spelling)

So "odd" is pronounced "awd"? That sounds awfully Texan to me.

Wait... no. :wtc: I DON'T KNOW

All I know is that they do, in fact, rhyme.

The way I pronounce it is

odd = audd

applaud = applaawd

Maybe it's a difference only Swedes can hear?
In English they're identical, the rhyme is quite clear.
Odd and applaud rhyme with plod, nod, and sod;
none of this awd, aud, or öwod, by God.

I don't have a rhyme.
I just hate Stubby for farting on me.
Pie.
