If you use Firefox browser you will see English vowels clearly. If you use IE you may not see them, rather you will see 2 boxes instead of 2 schwas.

Anyway, for more clarification: vowel before and after [lu:h] is schwa as the encoding you use may show schwas differently.

Dear jlacina,
Sorry for any misunderstanding. I mean [u:] as in loop. Just a long vowel NOT [aw] (fatha+waw).

I doubt that you can find it in dictionaries since it is a dialect.
