"A" as in "banana"[edit]

Which syllable? I pronounce that "buh-NAE-nuh". If the vowels are the same as in Malay, "A" would be as in "father", except at the ends of words, where it would be a schwa. Also, the "i" is always as in "film", never like "ee" in "cheese"? That would be a difference from Malay, too. But given that most readers won't know Malay, is it very useful to say the vowels are the same as Malay vowels? Ikan Kekek (talk) 23:29, 15 January 2018 (UTC)
