Twitter La literatura más corta del mundo Tags: género breves El género breve en la escritura nació el día en que un autor decidió reducir las palabras de una historia para conceder a la imaginación del oyente la parte más importante de su cuento. No lo hizo corto porque quisiera hablar tan solo de un instante, ni porque quisiera robarle todos sus detalles. Era una especie de juego de condensación en el que el autor construye el esqueleto y quien lo escucha, o quien lo lee, arma el castillo a su antojo. (Texto de Mario Tascón y Mar Abad.

We like making our own though as often as is practical as we can really get the right color, texture, fit, and feel for each piece. These end caps can take a bit of time and practice to be able to get a pair or more to match up well.

For each sound, it gives: The symbol from the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), as used in phonetic transcriptions in modern dictionaries for English learners — that is, in A. C. Phonetics: pronouncing vowels The 5 vocalic letters of the English alphabet (A, E, I, O, U) have usually two different kinds of pronunciation. English people call these pronunciations "short" or "long" vowel. We are not talking about combinations of vowels here, it is only when they go alone in a syllable, and specially if they are stressed, because non-stressed syllables usually weaken and change their pronunciation (to schwa most of the times). So, if every vowel may have two different pronunciations, how do we know which pronunciation is the correct one in a word? Well, you have to look it up in a dictionary if you want to know, but we will give you a simple rule that will help you get it right 75% of the times:
