separate [adjective]
- Phonetic transcription: /'seprət/
- Sound file: http://cougar.eb.com/soundc11/s/separa04.wav
- Explanation: The stress falls on the first syllable as well. The first 'a' is very subtle, sometimes not pronounced at all. The final 'a' is pronounced /ə/. Notice that the end of the word (-parate) is pronounced rather quickly, in a single expiration movement.
