A split digraph is a spelling pattern where two letters, typically a vowel and an "e," work together to create a single sound in a word, even though they are separated by another letter. In this list, split diagraph o-e is used to spell the long /o/ sound. By adding the e, you make the o say its name.

Here are some examples of how adding an e turns a short /o/ sound into a long /o/ sound:

Cod + e = code

Hop + e = hope

Robe + e = robe

Click on the speaker icon next to each word. Can you hear the long /o/ sounds?
