R or R not to be!

I found a few missing & added R’s, but I need your help! American English has lost & gained R’s over the years, so I know more are lurking in dictionaries. (I am supposed to be cousin to Daniel Webster, so maybe it runs in the family) Anyone who submits an R word gets an Atta boy/Atta girl from me.

 

Gained an R:

Tomato>mater

Potato>tater

Oil> Erl (in the mountains)

 

Lost R’s:

Banjar>banjo

Curse>cuss

Booger>boogie

Arse>ass

Ornery>onry

Curse>cuss

Burst>bust

Lord>lawd
