    Re: ask for help

    It means a reduced e with a consonant (according to the Wikipedia page); l, m or n respectively. And "label" cannot be pronounced /ˈleɪb. You need the l sound at the end to make it a word.

    It's a good idea to consult this link: Wikipedia:IPA for English - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
