Why does the pronunciation of kör changes if I listen to the single word or the full phrase? Alone is "kor", in the phrase is "shor". Which is the correct pronunciation?

The one with the sh-sound. Sometimes the TTS mixes up words depending on whether they're ina sentence or standalone. Kör with a hard K means "choir".

How would I say this in the physical sense, as if they are avoiding the city on a road trip? Does it stay the same and the context will need to clarify it?

Then they would round it on the outside, avoiding it.
