Again Pronunciation

Again Pronunciation in American and British English:

American English (US) Pronunciation:

IPA Notation: /əˈɡɛn/

Phonetic Spelling: uh-GEN

Breakdown:

/ə/: The first syllable is pronounced with a schwa sound, which is a neutral, unstressed vowel sound (like the "a" in "sofa").

 /ˈɡɛn/: The second syllable is stressed, with "e" pronounced like the "e" in "men," followed by an "n" sound.

British English (UK) Pronunciation:

IPA Notation: /əˈɡeɪn/ or /əˈɡɛn/

Phonetic Spelling: uh-GAYN or uh-GEN

Breakdown:

/ə/: The first syllable is pronounced with a schwa sound, the same as in American English.

/ˈɡeɪn/: One common pronunciation has the second syllable stressed, with "ai" pronounced like the "ay" in "say," followed by an "n" sound.

 /ˈɡɛn/: Another common pronunciation is similar to the American version, with "e" pronounced like the "e" in "men," followed by an "n" sound.

In both American and British English, "again" has variations in the pronunciation of the second syllable, with regional differences affecting whether it sounds like "GEN" or "GAYN."
