Bossy R – ER, IR, UR, AR, OR
An R behind any vowel changes the sound. ER, IR, and UR all have the same sound.
Note that Silent e wins sometimes: words with -are can say long a, Examples: care, share, flare. -ire can say long i, Examples: fire, tire, wire.
But notice that OR wins: adore, bore, shore, snore & UR wins: nature, picture, treasure.
An e before ar can have many different sounds: long e (hear), “er”(learn), “air” (pear), & “ar” (heart)
