In English, the letter 〈u〉 has four main pronunciations. There are "long" and "short" pronunciations. Short 〈u〉, found originally in closed syllables, most commonly represents /ʌ/ (as in 'duck'), though it retains its old pronunciation /ʊ/ after labial consonants in some words (as in 'put') and occasionally elsewhere (as in 'sugar'). Long 〈u〉, found originally in words of French origin (the descendent of Old English long u was respelled as 〈ou〉), most commonly represents /juː/ (as in 'mule'), reducing to /uː/ after 〈r〉 (as in 'rule') and sometimes (or optionally) after 〈l〉 (as in 'lute'), and after additional consonants in American English (see do–dew merger). (After 〈s〉, /sjuː, zjuː/ have assimilated to /ʃuː, ʒuː/.) In a few words, short 〈u〉 represents other sounds, such as /ɪ/ in 'business' and /ɛ/ in 'bury'.
