I'd like to buy a vowel

More minutiae from my life. Why on earth do you keep coming back? This is excruciating!

I have midterms tonight, people. Two of them. But here I am at work, trying to get some work done (you know, the kind they pay me to do). However, I am seriously deficient in understanding my vowels for the Linguistics test as attested by my lovely husband who drilled me with flashcards last night. When we got to the vowels, I was just completely clueless, he threw the cards at me (lovingly, of course) and said "you really need to study these!" Ya think? So, I replaced my really cute and snarky wallpaper on my pc (this one)--->


with this one--->

in the hope of learning this through osmosis because my previously photographic memory expired sometime in my mid-30s and now I'm out of film. If any body has any tips on how to memorize this, please share!

Well, at least you know he's willing to be honest with you.

Good luck with the memorization.

I think making it your background is probably a good idea. Hopefully, you did not clutter it by covering it with work or something ;)

The only linguistics course I took was somewhere between 11 and 13 years ago, so I can't really be much help.

Good luck on your test.
