This week many people have contacted me to ask about the schwa vowel sound. This VERY COMMON vowel sound is found in both American and British English.
The symbol for schwa is /ə/.
The sound it makes is a weak “uh”.
While this little “uh” may not seem like an important sound, it is...in fact /ə/ is the most common vowel sound in spoken English.
That means that you MUST know about the schwa sound if you want to speak English like an American.
