Spelling the long vowel sound /ā/: a-e, ai, ei, ay

We have listed all the common words for ay and ei spellings. There are lots of a-e and ai words.
Too many for us to list. Check with a dictionary if you are unsure.

How is the long a sound spelt in these words?

Remember, if it uses the split digraph a-e there will be a letter in between!
