A question about pronunciation

Postby gfl87 » 2019-09-08, 9:59

Hello everybody,

what is the most correct pronunciation of the word مدرسہ?
I've seen that most dictionaries give it as مدرَسہ, but others (including the "Oxford Urdu-English Dictionary") like مدرِسہ. The latter is given with /e/ rather than /ɪ/: is it the case?

Thank you,

I think it's مدرَسہ. Maybe some people say مدرِسہ instead.
