I've noticed Americans pronounce that word differently as it is in the phonetics in the dictionary. I'm refering to the 'e' sound. They say something like /bahaind/. Is it posible?

Are there any other examples of this?

@ as in the words CAT or HAT ?
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I often hear it as "uh" like the o in mother. I don't know if that's the @ symbol, but I have never heard it said like the a in cat.
Hi,

So @ should be found in America /@[email protected]/ and cup /[email protected]/. Check that link when you don't remember what some symbols stand for, I too am still not familiar with SAMPA. Emotion: smile
Ooops, I didn't see GG's reply...
Yes, @ is like the "o" in mother, it's "uh" (schwa). Emotion: smile
