    Underline the long a words.

    " Underline the long a words." is used as follows:

    - Write each sentence. Add the apostrophes. Underline the long a words.

    1. Shes right to say that.
    ==> She's right to say that.

    Then, what do I need to do?
    "Underline the long a words" means?

    Does "the long" mean " a long sound"?

    Thanks.

    mad versus made
    lad versus laid

    The second in the pairs above have the long A sound.

    Shes right to say that.

    Which word had the vowel sound like the A in made or laid?
