Mid /ə/
Open a /a/ aa /a:/

The sound /ə/ occurs on any syllable directly following a stressed syllable.


Stress usually falls on the ultimate or final syllable, unless otherwise shown. If the stress falls on a syllable other than the last syllable, it is shown with an acute (´) above the nucleus of the syllable and the following vowel will be destressed (ə). A long vowel (aa, ii, uu) will always take on stress, no matter the placement in a word, however, the following syllable does not become destressed as with other situations.
