Pronunciation of “mirror”

Paolo asked:

hi, i’m italian and i have trouble pronouncing “mirror”, any suggestion?
paolo

My answer:

There are some words that are hard to pronounce even by native speakers. “Mirror,” “horror” and “murderer” are examples. In my opinion, “mirror” rhymes with the word “nearer,” but you will hear variations of that in different parts of the US and also depending on whether someone is speaking carefully and clearly or just rushing through a sentence.

Take a look at the link below. A native speaker asked this same question and a lot of people commented on how they say this word. So you see, even Americans hear variations of this word and they wonder which one is correct.
