Does pork rhyme with fork/cork/dork/bork to you?

This Wikipedia page seems to say that it doesn’t. In fact, it seems to say that nothing rhymes with the word pork.

CTRL+F and type in “Pork” and you’ll find this paragraph:
“pork /ˈ-ɔərk/ has no rhymes in conservative RP and GA. However, the distinction between horse and hoarse has been mostly lost in younger generations, and for them pork rhymes with fork, cork, etc.”
Huh. So I guess I’m part of the younger generations, because the way I’ve always said (and heard) “pork”, it’s always rhymed with “fork”.
And then there’s this discussion on the talk page that apparently ended with people confirming nothing rhymes with “pork”.
This is all just mind boggling to me. I’ve never ever heard “pork” not rhyme with “fork”.

What about you?

ETA: I guess the deep rooted question here is: Is Wikipedia wrong about this?

They rhyme to me, and I would hardly call myself part of the “younger generation”.

If I say it with a southern (US) accent all I get is “poke”. Plenty of rhymes for that too.
Never heard any other way than rhyming with fork.

If it doesn’t rhyme, how is it actually pronounced?

So, I guess the deep-rooted question here is “Is Wikipedia wrong?” : p

I, too, can’t think how one would pronounce “pork” so that it didn’t rhyme with “fork” et al.

I tried googling for a pronunciation, and one of things I found was this video explaining how to pronounce “pork” and “fork,” aimed at non-native speakers who have trouble distinguishing the P and F sounds. The words certainly sound like they rhyme the way the woman in the video says them.

There was an old lady from Cork
Who liked to eat shit with a fork
Her son said, 'You goon!
'You eat shit with a spoon!
‘It’s pork that you eat with a fork!’

– Ed Bluestone (I think)

According to the article in the OP, like this: /ˈpɔərk/.

This means that it’s the (East Coast) vowel sound of bought combined with the vowel sound of work–which is indeed an unusual diphthong. I’ve heard it like this, but always thought that was a very regional (Southern) pronunciation. Certainly not standard pronunciation. Just turn on the TV and listen to any commercial–the word *pork *will rhyme with fork.

So it’s more like ‘park’ than ‘fork’?

They rhyme to me, and I speak the Queen’s English.

Pork rhymes with fork, cork, dork, bork AND talk, chalk and walk, just to be difficult.

Australian, middle-aged, no second language.

They definitely rhyme. (I’m in my thirties and I’m in South Western PA, FWIW)

I’m 68. I guess the “younger generation” is everyone under 70.

They rhyme to me, and I speak RP. In the OED, which uses RP for its pronunciations, they rhyme. Wikipedia is wrong.

Pork and fork rhyme.
Bork, dork, cork rhyme.

The two sets don’t rhyme with each other, though. I’m mid 30s, so not young enough to be in the younger generation. Perhaps that has something to do with it.

56, lived and mostly schooled in the UK until 1979, in the US since then, and in my head I cannot make all of those words NOT rhyme.

Time to edit the Wiki page. You know you can do that, right?

The best album by the rock band “Southern Culture on the Skids” is called “Too Much Pork for Just One Fork.” A data point.

I agree with others who said they can’t imagine how all these words could NOT rhyme. Even if your accent happens to be, say, non-rhotic, you’d still pronounce them all in the same (non-rhotic) way. Weird.

Of course pork and fork rhyme. So do ham and lamb. And bacon and fakin.

Is this like “pwark”? Kind of like the metal band Gwar?
