    an accepted principle

    Do you pronounce "an" as /æn/? Or as /ən/?

    ====================
    Rule: an accepted principle or instruction that states the way things are or should be done, and tells you what you are allowed or are not allowed to do.

    Re: an accepted principle

    I use the schwa pronunciation if I'm speaking quickly. I might use either if I were speaking more slowly.
