In normal speech, it's /jɪj'tso/ in IPA ([jиᵉjцó] in traditional Cyrillic transcription). In unstressed syllables, я usually becomes /(j)ɪ/ due to vowel reduction.
But if you pronounce it /jaj'tso/ ([jаjцó]), as written, this would also be OK: it will be understood as extra-careful pronounciation.
N.B. ц /ts/ is a single consonant that starts like t and ends like s.
... unstressed я is also characteristic of some dialects where unstressed e, a and o after palatalized consonants are pronounced a**-flavoured, either consistently through the system or in some of the environments.
So the woman's pronunciation which I hear in this thread is correct, but the new man's voice is not, as he pronounces an "a" at the end. If I understand correctly, the singular яйцо is pronounced with the stress on the second syllable, while the plural яйца should be stressed on the first syllable.
Along these lines I hear almost a very small unstressed ə before the V sound on Duo, so it sounds like əVot - is this Duo, or does it have something to do with the o modifying the в?
What's the difference in Russian if you say " here is the egg " and " here is an egg"
You can change words order Here is an egg - Здесь яйцо. Here is the egg - Яйцо здесь.
