A Vowel letter

B. A Vowel letter can represent more than one speech sound, depending on the
presence of other letters:

                       (“Short”)          (“Long”)

Vowel            First                Second             Third

a                     am                    ate                      all

e                     egg                   eve

i                      in                      ice

o                     on                     open

u                     up                     use                      put

I will use the terms, “short,” “long,” and “third” sounds. “Vowel” means a vowel letter, as a. A vowel
sound is denoted /a/. Note that in its “long” sound, a vowel “says its own name.”
