Unstressed Vowels are letters that are not easy to hear in a word. The unstressed vowel is the little ‘uh’ sound we say in weak syllables, like the er in WATer, the‘ar’ in LIar, the or in TRACtor, or the a in CHIna.

Unstressed syllables all sound the same, no matter how they are spelt and they are usually represented by the vowel sound schwa which looks like this /ә/.

Consider the following examples:

WAter  /w ᴐ:tә(r)/

LI ar /LaIә(r)/

TRACtor /traktმ(r)/

CHI n/t∫aInә /

PRI vate  /praIvәt/

Unstressed vowels may also be represented by the short vowel sound /ɪ/.

Examples:

Manage    /mᴂnɪdȝ/

GARbage  /ga:bɪdȝ/

Adage       /әedɪdȝ/

WANted    /wɒntӀd/

HANded   /hәndɪd/

FOUNded /faʊndɪd/

PARted     /pa:tɪd/
