The Four Long and Short \begin{align*}<\text{u}>\end{align*} Sounds

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

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

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

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

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

\begin{align*}& \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} \end{align*}

5. Write two other words with [u]: __________

6. Write two other words with \begin{align*}[\breve{\text{oo}}]\end{align*}: __________

7. Write two other words with \begin{align*}[\bar{\text{oo}}]\end{align*}: __________
