    Default Re: consonats vowel

    Hello,ramona

    To be more specific, y is called semivowel because it is the consonant form of the vowel i.

    Semivowel: j, w (sounds that glide gracefully.)


    Happy Sherry is sometimes moody,
    she said yes but then sorry.


    The bold y is a consonant (a semivowel) whereas the rest of y's are a short vowel, i.
