Could you write some tips on how do we pronounce this sound?
Thank you very much in advance, Dejan.
In BrE, the front of the tongue rises to roughly the half-open position; the rims make slight contact with the upper molars. The lips are neutrally open.
I am not sure whether that helps much, I'm afraid. I have found that trying to create vowel sounds from a written description is not easy. In fact, I am following the above description as I write, and producing a variety of sounds in the region of /æ/; however, some of them approach /ʌ/, /ə/ or /ɜ/.
Context is important. Please provide enough for us to be able to deal effectively with your question.
Your thread title should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.
If you just want to know the meaning of a word, try OneLook Dictionary Search first.
If I might venture a remark (I'm not a teacher, mind you, I only studied EFL): there are many on-line dictionaries offering audible (voice) pronunciation. Try listening to a number of words containing the /æ/ sound and see whether you can imitate the sound in a satisfactory manner.
Just an idea...
