    peas piece and peace

    I looked up and found out in the Cambridge Dictionary that there is apparently any difference about the pronunciation of: peas, piece and peace; just because every mentioned word has the following IPA: piːs.
    Have I got all it wrong?
    Thank you.

    Re: peas piece and peace

    Check your dictionary again. If it says that 'peas' is pronounced /piːs/, it's wrong. 'Peas' is pronounced /piːz/.
