/ə/

Contingut exercicis

The sound /ə/, called “schwa”, is the most common sound in English. It occurs in what we call weak syllables. That is, in a word with two or more syllables, at least one of them is not stressed, so the vowel sound in this syllable is the schwa. Pronouncing this sound correctly will make your pronunciation more accurate, natural and native-like.

Any vowel can be pronounced as schwa, so there’s no single representation for this sound, and we can even find a group of several letters or syllables pronounced like schwa, for example in away, paper, doctor, colour

To pronounce it, we just need to have our tongue and lips relaxed and let the air out. Have a look at the video to see how it sounds!
