When I looked atit up in the dictionary, two versions of pronunciation for word "have" was listed. hǽv and həv.

hǽv is the one that I am most familiar with. But this həv with the schwa sound... when is it used?

My first assumption was that həv is used when hǽv is reduced - for instance, when people start talking fast. Word "can" is an example of that. The reduced form of kǽn is kən.

So is həv (and also həd) the reduced form?

Thank you.
