That depends on what dialect you're talking about. Long ago all English dialects had the same vowel in "put" and "but" but now it's only Northern English dialects (and some Midland ones) that do this. Several centuries ago something happened called the "foot-strut" split. Words in the "foot" class ("put" is one of them) kept the old vowel /U/ while those in the "strut" class ("but" is one of them) changed to a lowered vowel. This split is presently seen in Southern British English and in English in most other parts of the world. Since it's seen in North America the split most likely predates North American colonization, so it probably happened in Early Modern English (the latter part of the 1400s to no later than the 1600s) If you'd like more information on the split, check out the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foot-strut_split#Foot-strut_split read less

This is because English is NOT phonetic language as compared to say, Hindi or Bengali.therfore, English pronunciation depends on the the sound created by the sylabals. Briefly, the English language has 26 letter in the alphabet series out of which there are 21 consonants and 5 vowels.
