"Vowel" in context

A vowel is a speech sound pronounced without any significant obstruction of the breath. It is made by allowing breath to flow out through the mouth, without the use of the tongue, lips, or other speech organs. English has five vowels: A, E, I, O, U. Other languages may have more than five vowels in certain dialects.

Vowels are used to form the nucleus of a syllable, and they can come either before or after consonants. English vowels can be short or long, but short vowels are more common.
