What is the most common American pronunciation of "current"? online dictionaries seem to give different IPA pronunciations.
Personally, although not American myself, I have always heard it pronounced as
According to Wiktionary (my go to dictionary for pronunciation): kʌɹənt or kɝɹənt
According to Merriam-Webster: kər-ənt, kə-rənt
According to Google: (I don't know what is the underlying dictionary used): kərənt (this is the pronunciation I know)
According to Macmillan Dictionary: kʌrənt
I have never heard Americans say
kərənt. either I have been exposed to a tiny subset of speakers from America, either these dictionaries are wrong. which one is the correct one?
