🇷🇸 Vokali ili samoglasnici

🇬🇧 Vowels

Vowels are sounds produced without any barrier in mouth. When we pronounce a vowel, air flows freely to create sound. The sound is modulated by moving tongue up or down, closer to or further from the palate, and by changing the shape of lips.

 

In Serbian language there are only 5 vowels: i, e, a, o and u. That’s less then in English.

They are pronounced consistently – always the same way.
