/i/ occurs only word finally (e.g., happy /hæpi/) and prevocalically (e.g., radio /reɪdioʊ/) and only in unstressed syllables (stressed /ɪ/ cannot occur word finally or prevocalically). /ɪ/ occurs in stressed syllables, and is always followed by a consonant (it is a plain lax vowel, e.g., bit /bɪt/). /ɪ/ also occurs in unstressed syllables when followed by a consonant within the morpheme (e.g., rabbit /ˈræbɪt/). Some older dictionaries (Jones, Országh) use /i/ for both the stressed /ɪ/ and the unstressed /i/. Slightly more recent ones (Gimson) use /ɪ/ in both cases. Newer dictionaries (Wells, Országh-Magay) use /ɪ/ and /i/ as described above. This last one is also our practice in the phonology courses, but Gimson's practice (i.e., using /ɪ/ in all cases) is also accepted.

Note that some authors (e.g., Windsor-Lewis, Gimson) use /ɪ/ for the lax vowel and /i/ for the tense vowel, e.g., bit /bɪt/ vs. beat /bit/.

Nekem az lenne a kérdésem, hogy mi a különbség a 2 féle "i" betű között? (az egyik a talpas, a másik, amin pont is van)Mert az én kéziszótáramban mind a kettő szerepel, és a háziban már többször elrontottam. Előre is köszönöm a segítséget!
