USAGE: Schwa and syllabification

My spelling textbook claims that the second syllable of 'little' has a schwa
in it; my immediate reaction was "What? Isn't it [lItl=]?". So now I'm
wondering, how do you tell the difference between schwa and syllabification?
(So for example is 'mechanic' [m@k&nIk] or [mk=&nIk]??)
