In summary, an unstressed syllable in English is a syllable in a word that is spoken with less emphasis or force compared to the other syllables. It can be identified by its quick and lower-pitched pronunciation and may have a reduced vowel sound. Unstressed syllables help create a natural flow and rhythm in spoken English. Not all languages have unstressed syllables, as stress is used differently in different languages. Understanding unstressed syllables can aid in pronunciation and overall fluency in language learning.

Does unstress syllable in English have creaky-voiced?To low in pitch and small in amplitude of the sound, the gap between vocal cords must be small.Is that correct?I do not know whether we narrowed the vocal cord(glottis) or not in unstress syllable in English?

Relative amplitude. I suppose "creaky voice" could be a side effect in some people.

Are you building a speech synthesizer ?
