comment Are there any words in English pronounced with /e/ at the end?
You pronounce 'bed' as /bed/ and not /bɛd/? I'm doubtful because I've never heard anybody prinounce it that way. [e] only occurs in rare situations in English and it is usually an allophone of /eɪ/.

@JohnLawler I'm not so sure that meh breaks the norm: the vowel is in an accented syllable, so it is unlikely to degrade into /ə/, and it seems to follow the pattern of similar monosyllabic utterances such as heh, eh, and yeh.

@JohnLawler I'm not sure what you mean by assimilation here. If you mean phonological assimilation, then I don't see what you mean because meh is not an example of a word where assimilation would be likely to happen. If you mean that it hasn't been widely adopted in English usage, then I disagree with you.
