Ə ə ə æ Like a in cat.
F f fe f Like f in four.
G g ge Like g in goal.

I ı ı ɯ Has no exact English equivalent. Somewhat similar io in nation.
İ i i ɪ Like y in berry.

S s se s Like s in six.

The difference is ;

 ə  is read  deeper, thicker and from the throat. In other words, it sounds like thicker e.

The Turkish e is not one but many if you listen to it carefully. Try for instance

 

                          gerçekten

                          beraber

                          yerleştirmek

 

in www.seslisozluk.net and you will hear it is sometimes narrower (like e in ten), sometimes wider (like a in cat).

 

What we mark with a certain letter within a certain language is an abstraction. Here, for instance, even though e has many realizations the nuances do not change the meaning. That is why there is no need to go into more details in spelling.
