The Long A Pronunciation – (Like You’ve Never It Heard Before)


The “Problem” of The Long A Pronunciation

(This post is the follow-up to a previous post about The Pronunciation Of The Letter A)

Okay, so the problem is not actually with The Long A Pronunciation –  but is, in fact, in the world of English language instruction.  And this problem is (from my experiential observation) that absolutely every text-book, almost all teachers, and virtually every organization which is set up to to teach the English language, lacks or suppresses the use of critical thinking – based upon experiential knowledge, and strengthened by actual observation, when it comes to the teaching of the English language.

This is not a new problem, but it certainly is a continuing problem.  And as I have only become aware of this problem through my immersion in language teaching – meaning that I didn’t go to school to get a degree in English philology or linguistics or any other related degree – I don’t know if anyone in “higher” education even talks about this problem…  (however I highly doubt it, as it seems that they prefer to avoid problems as much as possible…  especially if it would mean that they would have to make some changes.)


But here it is…


 There is not only one “Long A” sound…  There are, in fact, three…

That’s right.  There are three different ways to pronounce The Long A.
