Hello, How're y'all doin? Folks, Are these forms above right? I've heard people saying / wiər/(like uíar) and /wɪər. And sometimes it really sounds like Were, Doesn't it?

When spoken clearly, the pronunciation is as in near (/nɪər/ or / niər/, depending on the region/accent).
If spoken more quickly, it can sound more like the vowel in her or were, so the pronunciation may be closer to /wɜr/

You should read more about the near-mirror merger here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English-l ... rer_merger and here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English-l ... rvocalic_r

Pronunciation greatly varies denpending on where you are and you can use wikipedia and IDEA (http://web.ku.edu/~idea/) as a source of input.
