Short vowels sounds

English short vowels sounds signs and words

 

Vowels= a, e, i, o, u
(and sometimes y )

Every English word has at least one vowel in it

Sometimes, those vowels say their “names”= the name of the letter as you say it in ABC’s. Those are called “long vowel” sounds.

Many times, however, those vowels have a different sound= a short vowel sound.

 

See below for practice saying each short vowel sound

a=sounds like the first sound in the word apple

e= sounds like the first sound in the word egg

i= sounds like the first sound in the words itty-bitty

o= sounds like the first sound in the word octopus

u= sounds like the first sound in the word up
