ir sound words flashcards

An r-controlled vowel is one that is immediately followed by the letter ‘r’ and which can no longer be pronounced as a long or short vowel.

When the letter r follows a vowel, the vowel is usually forced to change its sound. That is why it is also called the ‘BOSSY R.’

In this post, we will be discussing the ‘ir sound words.’
