If you mean the "a" of apple, no. That vowel doesn't exist in Turkish. Do you mean like the "e" sound in the second syllable of apple? Most English speakers pronounce the -le at the end of "apple" like a syllabic L sound ("LLLLLLLLL!"). At best the second syllable vowel in "apple" is a schwa, a sort of undignified and uninteresting central mouth sound with no stress. :)
The second "e" of şeker is fully pronounced, in the mid front of your mouth with your lips not too open -- a bit like the vowel in bet and met -- and in fact the accent falls on that syllable. (Usually falls on the last syllable of non-proper nouns).
It sounds a lot like the Persian pronunciation of the same word, on turtle mode. In Persian the the second E sound in seker has the sound of A in apple instead . The Turkish audio pronounced it exactly like a Persian native speaker in turtle mode . That is why I'm confused. Honestly there are a lot of Persian and Arabic loan words here and I sometimes mix all the three languages up and I'm not sure if I'm hearing it the way I learned them in my native Language or if there is actually a difference.
Totally right. Loads of loan words. Lucky you if you've got Persian and Arabic down, you'll find Turkish to be much easier than the poor souls who've only ever learned European languages. :)
Just a hint: In Arabic or Persian loanwords, if there is a short, front "a" sound like you hear in English Bat, Mat, Cat, Apple, etc, it's almost always going to turn into an "e" sound. For example, even the A-letter "alif" of Arabic is written as "elif" in Turkish!
