    pronunciation article A

    HI, I posted this already, but didn't get any answer. I hope to be luckier this time.
    When I have the article "a", for example A one-time thing, or A waffle, etc..., when do I pronounce A (as in pArt) and when EI (as in gay)? I hope that the question is clear.

    thank you very very much.

    Re: pronunciation article A

    Pronounce a (the indefinite article) /eI/ as in day or /F/ as in at when stressed and /c/ (the schwa sound) as in ago when unstressed.

    I do not know when do you pronounce a as that in pArt /pYrt/. As an article, I guess you dont.
