Hello can you please tell me what the long o sounds like because i need to know that. Also I would like to know what the long a, short a, and short o sound like. if you can help that will be great thank you for all the help.
The long o sound is generally transcribed as the diphthong /c/ (schwa + upsilon) or /o/ (small case <o> + upsilon) in IPA phonetic symbology. Typical examples are low, no & go. The short o is /Z/ (a turned script A) as in rock, or & hot. Please note some examples given have variant pronunciations.
The long a is generally considered to be the diphthong /ew/ (small letter <e> + small capital letter <I>) as in day, age & face. The short a is /ζ/ (an a-e ligature called ash) as in hat, cap & absent.
Please note also the long a sound is exactly how you utter the 1st Roman alphabet letter A, a. Similarly the long o sound is how you say the alphabet O, o.
