For this short study, Investigated 9 words at random which gave me 20 schwas according to the notation at thefreedictionary.com (IPA?).  Clicking the speaker icon I listened to the words and spelled them in truespel.  I sorted out the schwas and show the phonemes that they actually represent.  Over half were "short i" ~i.
