After Pronunciation

After Pronunciation in American and British English:

American English (US) Pronunciation:

IPA Notation: /ˈæf.tɚ/

Phonetic Spelling: AF-ter

Breakdown:

/ˈæf/: The first syllable is stressed, with "a" pronounced like the "a" in "cat," followed by an "f" sound.

/tɚ/: The second syllable is unstressed, with "er" pronounced with a schwa-like sound (similar to the "er" in "water" in American English).

British English (UK) Pronunciation:

IPA Notation: /ˈɑːf.tə/

Phonetic Spelling: AHF-tuh

Breakdown:

/ˈɑːf/: The first syllable is stressed, with "a" pronounced like the "a" in "father," followed by an "f" sound.

/tə/: The second syllable is unstressed, with "er" pronounced with a schwa sound, softer and without the r-colored vowel sound found in American English.

In both American and British English, the pronunciation of "after" differs slightly in the vowel sounds and the treatment of the "r" sound at the end.
