or 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 ‘or words.’



When the ‘o’ is followed by r, it makes the sound you hear in the words ‘cork’, ‘for‘, ‘dorm’, ‘short’ or ‘forth’.
