  1. Short and Long

    • Each vowel has a short sound and a long sound. In general, the name of the vowel is also its long sound. The short sound for A is "ae," for E it is "/e/," for I it is "/i/," for O it is "ah" and for U it is "uh." The way you pronounce the letter A in the word "apple" utilizes A's short sound. Its long sound is apparent in the pronunciation of the word "plane."


    Using Long Vowels

    • According to ESL Gold, "long vowels are usually (but not always) indicated by a second (silent) vowel in the same syllable." For instance, the words sheep, goat, hair, and juice all provide examples of this. In this situation, the letters Y and W sometimes function in the place of a second vowel. One way for young people to understand this rule is to memorize the following word play: When two vowels go walking, the first one does the "talking" and it says its name. For instance, in the word soap the O uses its long sound (or "says its name") and the A is silent.


    Using Short Vowels

    • Short vowels usually appear alone. Sometimes they are followed by a doubled consonant. For instance, the words jet, hat, cod, hum and lick all use short vowel sounds. Words that include the double consonant are happy, hummingbird, puppy, will and watt.
