Basic Speller - Lesson 20 - The Four Long and Short <{u}> Sounds


Lesson Twenty

The Four Long and Short <\text{u}> Sounds

1. There are two different short <\text{u}> sounds. You can hear the first one in the word duck. We write it this way: [u]. We call it short <\text{u}>.

You can hear the second short <\text{u}> sound in the word bull. We write it this way: [\breve{\text{oo}}]. We call it short <oo>, which sounds like “short ooh”.

2. There are also two different long <\text{u}> sounds. You can hear the first one in the word tuna. We write it [\bar{\text{oo}}]. We call it long <oo>, which sounds like “long ooh.”

You can hear the second long <\text{u}> sound in the word mule. We write this second long <\text{u}> [\text{y} \bar{\text{oo}}]. We call it long <yu>, which sounds like “long you.”

3. Listen for the short and long <\text{u}>'s in these words. Then sort the words into the four groups below:

& \text{but} && \text{used} && \text{good} && \text{touch} \\ & \text{whose} && \text{school} && \text{few} &&  \text{music} \\ & \text{govern} && \text{puppy} && \text{zoo} &&   \text{enough} \\ & \text{fuel} && \text{could} && \text{through} &&   \text{rule} \\ & \text{fruit} && \text{view} && \text{cube} &&  \text{number}
