Dear members and friends.
''Are the unstressed ''short I sound'', which are adjectives, reduced to schwa in American English (AmE) in words similar to these ones when preceded by a stressed syllable as in the following words below.
Delicate /ˈdɛləkɪt/; /ˈdeləkət/
This word (delicate) seems to me to be pronounced with a ''short I sound'' in its final syllable.
If those ''short I sound'' in the words above are reduced to schwa, they would sound as these ones below?
Delicate /ˈdɛləkɪt/; /ˈdɛləkət/
Your replies will be deeply appreciated and welcomed.
