What Are Vowel Digraphs?
A better understanding of vowel digraph helps us in identifying common digraphs of English. With it, we can also represent example words and digraphs that we are going to highlight in a chart. Understand what is a digraph first? You can spell one sound of a word due to the combination of two letters that we call digraph. The word 'digraph' has two separate parts. 'Di' means two, and the graph indicates ' a written form.' Consonants and vowels have digraphs that relate to multiple features of English spelling. As a learner, you can fairly get consonant digraphs like + h or (sh) in a ship or c + h or ch in a chair. Learning vowel digraphs is challenging for students as they find two different vowel alphabets beside one another. Learn the central letter of a word to show one sound in a word.
Doubled letters are vowel digraphs such as oo in the foot, and ee in a seed. Such digraphs will have different sounds as compared to the case when you find them in a single form. You can see a single presence of digraph in a word like one 'e' in a hen or 'o' pot. You will experience one sound in a word when you use a combination of two different vowel letters as vowel digraph.
