    How to find out

    Is there any way we could find out that we are using "ʌ" sound and not "ə" sound instead.

    You could record yourself and see what people think.

    Re: How to find out

    I think that recording yourself is a good idea. And then you could perhaps compare yourself to the audio files on these websites:

    www.thefreedictionary.com
    www.dict.cc

    An example:

    Re: How to find out

    By the way, this isn't on the schwa, but I show several words with "ʌ" that English-learners often get wrong. It could be useful...
