In a similar question which asks the difference between /ə/ and /ʌ/, I learned that /ʌ/ occurs in stressed syllables. Now there is another similar vowel sound: /ɐ/ which also occurs in stressed syllables.
I don't know the difference between /ɐ/ and [ɐ] yet but I am only concerned about the sounds they give whether it is "[ɐ] and [ʌ]" or "/ɐ/ and /ʌ/"
In Wikipedia, [ɐ] is given in many varieties of English like California, Cockney, East Anglia, New Zealand, Received pronunciation and some other Englishes. As an example in Received Pronunciation, the example given in wikipedia is "nut" and transcription: "[nɐʔt]" whereas an example of [ʌ] is "gut" transcription: "[ɡʌt]".
I would expect both "gut" and "nut" to have the same vowel but I don't know which vowel they have. Assuming that wikipedia is not so reliable, I consulted Cambridge dictionary which gives /ʌ/ for both "gut" and "nut".
One of my friends told me that the pronunciation of the word "cut" as given in the Cambridge Online Dictionary uses [ɐ] but when I hear both [ʌ] and [ɐ], they sound the same to me.
The name of /ɐ/ is Near-open central vowel and /ʌ/ is Open-mid back unrounded vowel but is there any difference between both of them? Which one does standard Englishes use? And how do you perceive the difference?
I need to know the difference between ɐ and ʌ (I am not concerned about the brackets). Can anyone enlighten me on this please?
