Does the first /ə/ in the second word come from the same Latin vowel as the /e̯a/ in the first word?
Sorry, that was a mistake, it should be e̯a. But as a general statement, the vowel is the same between the two, and the vowel cannot become /ə/ <ă>
The transcription should be [pe̯alu t͡se̯anə'rɨt͡s], then?
