I'm not a native english speaker.
I was wondering what is the right way to pronunce the "I" (/aɪ/) vowel name in fast speech.
Perhaps i'm confused, but sometimes i hear /a/. Like in the Arctic Monkeys song "I bet that you good look on the dance floor". Just in the chorus, i hear something like /abet.../ more than /aɪbet/.
And other times i even hear only a schwa /ə/ sound. Like in the White Stripes song "Fell in love with a girl". Over the last of the second verse Jack says "i seid it once before..." i hear /əsed/ more than /aɪsed/ or /ased/. I want to know what you thinking about.
If i write down this in the wrong place or if i had a grammar or spell mistake i beg you apologise me.
