Pronunciation of это and эта
Are "это" and "эта" pronounced differently or do they sound exactly the same? I don’t hear any difference at all, but maybe native speakers do. Can anyone help me please?

You may only hear people saying это with o in some villages maybe or in Ukraine (under the influence of Ukranian).Vote Up Vote Down

The main rule is to pronounce the letter "о" like "о", when it is under a stress only, and like "а" - without stress. So in this case there is no difference in the pronunciation (because o is unstressed)Vote Up Vote Down
