schwa vowel

An undistinguished, unstressed, neutral vowel sound that is the usual sound of the first and last vowels of the word "America," but even shorter in duration. In stuttering, stress and duration may be more obvious, and related to the incorrect syllable production as in "puh-puh-puh-pin."
