Americans also consciously attempted to reform spelling and pronunciation
to distinguish themselves from the British post-Revolution. It's why
'waistcoat' isn't pronounced 'veskit' on this side of the pond.
I further note that the L in milk is pronounced, but not in yolk, which is
homophonous with yoke. If yok were a word, which to my knowledge it is
not, it would have the back open vowel, the first A in Alderaan.
