WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW  . . . 

1st and 2nd Syllable
  • Each word in this sort is a two-syllable word. There is a long-vowel sound in either the first or second syllable. For example, in the word sofa, the long-vowel sound is in the first syllable. However, in the word erode, the long-vowel sound is in the second syllable.
Oddball
  • The oddball of this sort is the word Europe. The reason it is an oddball is because it is the only word that does not have a long-o sound. If you break the word into syllables, it would say Eu / rope. Normally, the "e" at the end of "rope" would create a long vowel. In this case, however, it is making a short-u sound.
  • Remember that Europe is a proper noun, meaning that it must be capitalized. You will lose a point on the spelling test if you forget to capitalize the "E" in Europe.
