3. Final a (unmarked), has the brief sound of Italian a,—that of a in last, as in so'fa, Cuba, Martha.
4. The long sound of u (yu) loses its first element (y) after d, t, 1, n, s, and th, as in du'ty, tūne. 5. After r, u has the sound of oo, as in rule.
6. The sound of ou is äoo, not ǎoo.

8. C usually has the sound of k before a, o, and u, as in came, come.
