In Modern English spelling, 〈i〉 represents several different sounds, either the diphthong /aɪ/ ("long" 〈i〉) as in kite, the short /ɪ/ as in bill, or the 〈ee〉 sound /iː/ in the last syllable of machine. The diphthong /aɪ/ developed from Middle English /iː/ through a series of vowel shifts. In the Great Vowel Shift, Middle English /iː/ changed to Early Modern English /ei/, which later changed to /əi/ and finally to the Modern English diphthong /aɪ/ in General American and Received Pronunciation. Because the diphthong /aɪ/ developed from a Middle English long vowel, it is called "long" 〈i〉 in traditional English grammar.
