I've added an IPA template to show its pronunciation, but I'm unsure as to whether the symbol after the k is right, it might have to be replaced by a schwa. I'm not sure how to tell the difference between the two, please change it if I was wrong.Scotty Zebulon 00:48, 28 January 2009 (UTC)[reply]

A schwa is definitely wrong since the syllable has secondary stres. --Explosivo (talk) 22:43, 1 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Able to be comforted[edit]

I wonder whether there is a sense "able to be comforted", i.e. consolable. It's hard to search. Equinox 21:36, 7 September 2010 (UTC)[reply]

IPA for General American[edit]

When choosing to swallow the second syllable, why is it /ˈkʌmf.tɚ.bəl/ with a rhotic /ɚ/? There is not R in -table. --Explosivo (talk) 22:43, 1 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]
