    The distinction between long and short vowels is about pronunciation.

    long A = A in hate
    short A = A in hat

    long E = E in he
    short e = E in left

    long I = I in kite
    short I = I in kit

    long O = O in go
    short O = O in hot

    long U = U in cute
    short U = U in cut

    There are several to many American accents.
