The Letter “y” at the End of a Word

• The consonant sound of “y” is /y/ as in the words “yum” and “yak”. Typically, at the beginning of the word the “y” makes the consonant /y/ sound.
• The “y” also has vowel sounds. Typically, in a one-syllable word the “y” at the end of the word makes the long “i” sound as in by, my and shy.
• Typically, in a two-syllable word, the “y” at the end of the word makes a long “e” sound as in happy and jelly.
