Is the fifth vowel and the twenty-first letter of the English Alphabet. It has four distinct vocal sounds; the first is short and acute, as in hut; the second a little longer, as in truth; the third long and close, as in mute; and the fourth short and obscure, as in fur, ful, &c. In many words it takes the sound of yu, as in unison; and sometimes of 00, as rule.
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
