One word is like pronouncing the vowel R and the consonant R in succession. Today I would like to introduce how to pronounce those words.
First, let's look at the phonetic symbols of the vowel R and the phonetic symbols of the consonant R.
At our school, the phonetic symbol uses IPA, but only the vowel R uses the Jones formula.
"How to pronounce Hurry: How do you pronounce the consonant R from the vowel R?"
Phonetic symbol of Jones-style vowel R: / əːr / ər / Phonetic symbol of IPA vowel R: / ɚː / ɚ /
The / ː / next to the phonetic symbol is the phonetic symbol when the vowel is accented.
Now that you know the phonetic symbols, let's look at the words!
" Pronunciation of consonant R from vowel R: word example "
Then, it is an example of the pronunciation of the vowel R to the consonant R.
If you look up the phonetic symbols of hurry in the dictionary, they are written in various phonetic symbols by the dictionary.
ALC: / hə́ːri /
Weblio: / hˈɚːri /
Longman: / ˈhɜːri /
Merriam-Webster: / ˈhər-ē /
Merriam-Webster is a slightly special notation. Only ALC has an accent mark / ˈ / directly above the phonetic symbol, but the recent trend is that the accent mark is usually placed before the syllable. Although the phonetic symbols are different, they all have the same pronunciation.
"How to pronounce hurry"
Now, I would like to introduce this "How to pronounce hurry?".
Our school uses the Jones formula for the pronunciation of the vowel R, so let's look at the phonetic symbols of ALC.
/ ˈHəːri /
In this pronunciation, the vowel R is after h, and it is not the pronunciation method of the "rolling consonant R" that is pronounced by rolling, but the "pulling vowel R" that is pronounced by pulling the tongue.
The tongue pulled back is rolled in the same position, brought to the pronunciation of the rolled consonant R, and the rolled tongue is swung down.
I tried to make an image of the movement of the tongue.
Tongue movement (1): h → pull vowel R
Tongue movement (2): Consonant R that winds the tongue from the pulling vowel R
Tongue movement (3): Swing down the rolled tongue and go to the vowel i
This is the pronunciation of hurry.
The pronunciation of the movement of moving the tongue from this tongue-pulling vowel R to the tongue-wrapping consonant R, and finally swinging the tongue down to produce the next vowel is called " Syllabic R " in technical terms. However, since it is a fairly specialized content, there are almost no hits even if you search on the net.
You may have noticed by looking at the phonetic symbol of hurry, / ˈhəːri /, but if the phonetic symbol of the vowel R is / əːr /, then the phonetic symbol of hurry should be written as / ˈhəːrri/? You may have thought. The pronunciation that does not use this notation is called " Syllabic R ", and the notation is also / ˈhəːri /.
"Examples of words pronounced like hurry"
This is where the phonetic symbol in red becomes " Syllabic R " . Here, the standard for judging whether it is Syllabic R is that the R of the consonant that winds the tongue is "when it comes in the word" and "the phonetic symbol is often schwa [ə]". The other is that the R of the consonant that winds the tongue is "when sandwiched between vowels" as a criterion.

"Introduction of our school exercises necessary for this pronunciation"
The movement of moving the tongue from the tongue-pulling vowel R to the tongue-wrapping consonant R, and finally swinging the tongue down to produce the next vowel, is not immediately pronouncing. If you don't practice your tongue movement, your tongue won't move well. Therefore, at our school, we use exercises to shift from this tongue-pulling vowel R to the pronunciation of the tongue-wrapping consonant R.
The exercise required for this pronunciation is "tongue switching exercises".
