    Re: Phonics question/schwa

    Hi - You do not need to repeat your post three times in 20 minutes to see if it gets more attention.

    The schwa symbol is the upside-down e.

    The sound is like "uh": the a in about, the o in love.

    See this: Schwa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
