Other names for this merger (better for those who have it) are "<small>LOT - THOUGHT</small> merger" or "<small>PALM - LOT - THOUGHT</small> merger". There is an area in the United States (in New England) where "lot" and "thought" are merged as [ɒ] but "palm"/"father" is different (as [ɑ]).

The cot-caught merger is present also in Europe, but there the father-bother merger does not appear (similar to the area in New England mentioned above). The rest of this article is about the North American merge.
