How is cur pronounced?

The way the British pronounce ‘cur’
Is different from the way Americans pronounce it;
In Britain, the ‘u’ is pronounced as the ‘oo’ in the word door.
In American English, it sounds like the ‘ear’ in the word earn
or the ‘ur’ in turn.
I must confess that this is the first time I have come across this word and appreciate WordPress for this prompt.
I will use it whenever it is appropriate to enrich my writing.
What about you?
Did you know this word before?
Have you ever used it?
