    Default Re: The Short U sound /ʌ/ and the short O sound /ɒ/

    The /ɒ/ may bear only secondary stress: /ˌpɒsəˈbəˈləti/.

    Where did you find the word 'mogolic'?

    Default Re: The Short U sound /ʌ/ and the short O sound /ɒ/

    Thank you 5jj:

    I think that the short O sound
    /ɒ/ may bear both stresses, for example:


    1) PRIMARY STRESS:

    Consonant
    /ˈkɒnsənənt/

    Competent
    /ˈkɒmpɪtənt/

    Odontology
    /ˌoʊdɒnˈtɒlədʒi/


    2) SECONDARY STRESS:

    Possibility
    /ˌpɒsəˈbɪlɪti/

    Conversation
    /ˌkɒnvərˈseɪʃən/

    Confidential
    /ˌkɒnfɪˈdɛnʃəl/


    3) Excuse me I meant '' Mongolic ''


    4) Mr, 5jj I would like to know the following:

    Are all monosyllable words unstressed, aren't they?

    Yours truly,



    The Apprentice
