I confess that when I say the phrase high school, I pronounce the word high with a reduced vowel /hÊŒÉª/ instead of /hÉ‘Éª/. It feels wrong to me to pronounce the phrase with high articulated as /hÉ‘Éª/. In isolation, high /hÉ‘Éª/ might rhyme with why /wÉ‘Éª/. In high school /hÊŒÉªskuËl/, the vowels I make sound like ice cool /ÊŒÉªskuËl/.
I hear lots of people say high school with a fully articulated high /hÉ‘ÉªskuËl/, and it generally sounds fine to me. But I don't do that. I really can't bring myself to do it.
