What is a long vowel? A long vowel is vowel that is pronounced the same as the name of the letter. For example, a long “u” would be pronounced “you.” Sometimes a long vowel sound is made using more than one vowel (example: “ee” in bee), combination of vowels and consonants (example: “igh” in high), or by a consonant (“y” in by).
