Homework Help: English Grammar

Posted by John on Wednesday, March 12, 2008 at 5:07pm.

e.g. glad / Jane
You should pay attention to the a sound in the word glad.
Focus on the /ei/ sound in 'Jane'. The ei sound is a diphthong.
When there is a consonant followed by silent e at the end in one syllable word, generally the letter a is pronounced /ei/. For example. same, cake, skate, face, date, fate, etc. cf. fat, Sam

----------------------------------
Is my explanation grammatical?
