A collection of various articles that may cast light on the aspect of vowels in which a reader of AWE might be interested.
Users of AWE may care to see some description of the logic behind the different articles. There are several groups of related articles:
- One group is about basics such as vowel, Long vowel - short vowel and IPA in AWE - vowels, with articles about the phonetic problems involved, such as Transcribing English vowels.
- One group develops the ideas of Long vowel - short vowel. It should include Short a - long a, Short e - long e, Short i - long i, Short o- long o and Short u - long u.
- Another group looks at the various sounds represented by the different written letters known as vowels: see 'A' (grapheme), 'E' (grapheme), etc.
- Another looks at phonetic symbols, which are listed in a table at IPA in AWE - vowels. The group has articles on the various ways of representing sounds that are described by symbols in the International Phonetic Alphabet which bear a resemblance to the relevant letters in the ordinary alphabet: for example, the symbols /æ/, /ɑː/ and /a/ all resemble written varieties of the letter 'A'. Note that all such articles have names beginning with the symbol enclosed in the 'slashes' / /: this is not only the normal convention for marking transcriptions into the IPA, but also serves the technical function of ensuring that lower case symbols appear in lower case in the titles - mediawiki software normalizes titles as starting with capital letters.
This category contains many unfinished or even unwritten articles to date (10/07/2011). One day it will be complete.
