Ok....I've read the first chapter in D'Ooge, and I have a question about the vowel O and U in both long and short varieties.
When you pronounce these long and short is there a noticable difference?
The examples D'Ooge gives to me don't sound very different. The only difference that I can tell is that with short O and U I proncounce the vowel a little farther back in my throat. Is this right??
