Ain't that the truth, lol. I've always jokingly said, "i don't have an accent, everyone else does", hehe.

Hot rhymes with not. Dog rhymes with fog. At the end of the day they sound the same even I elongated the vowels.

Yes. Same vowel. There is no "ah" vs "aw" going on in my dialect.

They sound a little different because in English, a vowel that comes before a voiced sound (as in dog) is slightly lengthened, while the same vowel before a voiceless sound (as in hot) is slightly shorter.

You can hear the same thing in the words "cap" (the "a" is a little shorter) and "cab" (the "a" is a little longer).

Yet there are many dialects that distinguish these vowels significantly based on consonant that follows.

Classic Dawn/Don or cot/caught vowel shift.
