How Do You Spell DUMPY?

The word "dumpy" is spelled with a "u" after the "m" because of the preceding "p" sound, which makes the "u" sound like an "uh" (schwa) sound. The IPA phonetic transcription for "dumpy" is /ˈdʌmpi/, with the schwa sound represented by the upside-down "e" symbol, and the "m" sound followed by the "p" sound represented by the "p" symbol. Although "dumpy" may look like it should be spelled with an "o" instead of a "u", the phonetic rules of English dictate otherwise.
