comment Pronounciation of the hiragana け and か
In English transcriptions, /e/ and /ɛ/ are two different representations of the same phoneme, so there is no difference to hear. You can find dress spelled both /drɛs/ and /dres/ in dictionaries, indicating the exact same vowel two different ways. In Japanese, /e/ is roughly halfway between [e] and [ɛ] (The Sounds of Japanese, Vance 2008, p.54).

comment Is the 'h' in Japanese pronounced the same as the 'f'?
@LeoKing Most commonly, phonemic notation goes in forward slashes, phonetic notation goes in square brackets.
