What are vowels?
Before you can download this great color printable vowel gift we have for you, we’re going to tell you a bit about vowels so you can not only show and work with the guys but also explain a little more about them.
In the Spanish language there are two sounds: vowels and consonants.
Vowels are letters with sounds or phonemes typical of the natural language, which are pronounced with an open mouth without obstruction of the tongue, teeth or lips.
The five vowel sounds are: a, e, i, o, u. In all languages, vowels form the nucleus of syllables, while consonants need a vowel to form syllables.
Therefore, we can say that the main function of vowels is to complement the sound of consonants and thus form words with meaning.
Vowels are classified into strong vowels and weak vowels, which allow the rules of stress to be identified and the syllables of a word to be distinguished.
The strong vowels are a, e, o, also called open vowels because they are pronounced with the oral cavity much more open than with other sounds.
On these vowels falls the greatest strength of the voice and thus form a syllabic nucleus to form hiatus or diphthongs.
The weak vowels are i, u, also known as closed vowels since they do not require a wide opening of the mouth when pronouncing them. These vowels do not function as a syllabic nucleus.
