Actually, I'd been wondering about that one for a while. For me, it ends up as "wobb't", which bears a strange resemblance to 'Robert' is said with a speech problem.
Haunting? (No, that's a bit TOO obscure.)

Like want. Just with a b instead of the n.
And what do you mean, you don't care if you have to divorce me? Mimph.

V. v. v. similiar to "wapt". Which actually sounds a lot like "wobb't" given that b and p are both unvoiced explosive consonants. Woohoo.
(I don't wabt to be divorced either, you know. Trent!)

/w&bt/, if at all i.e. with the same vowel as (the American pronunciation of) "bat" for comparison: "want" /w@nt/, "punt" /p@nt/, "rabbit" /'r& bIt/, "CZ" /si zi/

want= waunt, when I i say it. ("aunt" being pronounced like they pronounce it in new england. *shrug*) wabt is the same way, but with a "bt" instead of an "nt", although sometimes it sounds like a "pt" *shrug*

Basically the same as Topia for me, I'd say, though I do think you've heard me say "wabt" in person.
