oa and ow words – Long vowel o flashcards

oa and ow words – Long vowel o flashcards

Long vowels are used to refer to the vowel sounds whose pronunciation is the same as its letter name. Long vowel sounds are also called ‘alphabet sounds.’

Let’s take an example to understand the difference between a short vowel and long vowel ‘o.’ Hear the sound of the vowel ‘o’ in the word cot. It is the short vowel sound /o/.

Now hear the sound of ‘oa’ in the word coat. It makes the alphabet sound of the alphabet ‘o.’

Hear the sound of vowel ‘o’ in orange. Now hear the sound of ‘ow’ in slow. Orange has the short vowel ‘o’ sound and slow has the long vowel ‘o’ sound.
