How do you pronounce the word "err"?

As in, "to make a mistake."

Do you pronounce it like "air" (as in "error"), or like "ur"?

That's how I've always pronounced it too. Turns out that's not correct.

If i'm saying error...of course I say it as air.

but if i'm just saying "err" like the question is....saying air doesn't really fit.

Me either, but I got in a discussion about this the other day, and it turns out that "ur" is actually the correct pronunciation, and "air" is not even an alternate.
