Some fun trivia about vowels. For example, do you know the most common vowel in English? If you said “e”: bzzt, wrong. Well, sort of: it’s the most common written letter, but the most common vowel sound is “ǝ” (“schwa”), which is that “uh” sound you’ll find in places like the end of the word “the”.1

  1. Unless you actually pronounce “the” as “thee” and not “thuh”, I guess. []
