Short vowels are vowel sounds that are pronounced briefly. In RP English, the short vowels are those in ‘pet’, ‘pot’, ‘put’, ‘putt’, ‘pat’ and ‘pit’ and the schwa sound. They can be compared to long vowels.
The short vowels can be represented by a curved symbol above the vowel: ă, ĕ, ĭ, ŏ, ŭ. The long vowels can be represented by a horizontal line above the vowel: ā, ē, ī, ō, ū. Here are some examples of short vowel words: at, egg, it, ox, up. Here are some examples of words with long vowels: ate, each, ice, oak, use.
Long vowel is the term used to refer to vowels whose pronunciation is the same as the letter’s name. The five vowels of the English spelling system (‘a’, ‘e’, ’i’, ‘o’ and ‘u’) each have a corresponding long vowel sound /eɪ/, /i/, /ɑɪ/, /oʊ/, /yu/.
Eunoia is the shortest six-letter word in the English language that contains all five main vowels.

The ‘long o’ /oʊ/ is a two-part vowel ending in a short ‘w-sound’ /w/. Part 1: The body of the tongue is pushed back and is in a low to middle mouth position and the lower teeth can be felt on the sides of the tongue.
If the long a is at the end of the word or syllable, use AY. If the long a is at the beginning or middle of the word or syllable, consider ai and a-e. NOTE: A-E is more common, but a general prompt to use vowel teams can allow students to apply this spelling generalization and practice independently.
