The pronunciation of any word in English (or any language at all) is not Universal. This is because there are many different dialects of The English Language — both throughout America, and also world-wide. The pronunciations that are presented on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! are based-upon a combination of both “common usage”, and the most neutral accent used in The International Common Tongue — a.k.a. “American English”.
Available – For this word: the “A” is pronounced as a true-schwa; the “ai” combination is pronounced as a Long “A” / Short “I” Diphthong (this is due to the placement of the letter “l” directly after it); and for the “-able” suffix – the “a” is pronounced as a u-schwa; there is a phantom-schwa in-between the “b” and the “l” (this is a product of the transition from one sound to another); and the final “e” is silent (this is the standard pronunciation of this suffix in The Common Tongue).
– /uh-VAYL-uh-bəl/ – /ʌ.ˈveɪ.lə.bəl/ – Notice also that the stress is on the second syllable –
