Afford Pronunciation

US Pronunciation:
In American English, the word "afford" is typically pronounced as /əˈfɔrd/ (uh-FOHRD). The stress falls on the second syllable (FOHRD).

UK Pronunciation:
In British English, the word "afford" is usually pronounced as /əˈfɔːrd/ (ə-FORRD). The stress also falls on the second syllable, but with a more open and diphthongized vowel sound (ə- as in "here" or "there", and ORRD with a longer "o" sound).

So, while both pronunciations are correct, the main difference is in the vowel quality and duration of the second syllable.
