Spelling Rule: Is It ai or ay?

There are six ways to spell the long vowel sound a:
a-e as in mane;
a as in apron;
ei as in vein;
ey as in they;
ea as in steak;
ai as in rain; and
ay as in day. 
We use “ai” in the beginning or middle of the word (aim, rain, pail, train) or syllable (airplane) and “ay” at the end of the word (play, stay, day, May) or syllable (playmate).
The rule “when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking” applies.
