SLOVAK VOWELS


Slovak has a very simple vocalic system:
five short vowels: a, e, i, o, u
five long vowels: á, é, í, ó, ú


Long vowels are pronounced twice as long as the short ones – there is no other difference between them, only quantity. However, this difference is important for distinguishing word meanings:
e.g. tvar (“form“) – tvár (“face“).
