CAN YOU HEAR ME?

Something REALLY Hinky is going on in your legislature

You've got Dems who are PUSHING DANGEROUS #ConCon Legislation that other states are WISELY dropping like Hot Potatoes

Look at this Committee Report ‼️
#NoConCon
Link to #HI Senate Judiciary Committee Report on resolution #SCR131

🚨It was adopted despite opposition from 16 Orgs; including @ACLU, @CommonCause @IndivisibleHI AND testimony of a HI Attorney General

Possibly this AG? πŸ‘‡

About 1/3 of you guessed right: #AmericanEnglish has about 14 vowel sounds. Here's a chart with 15 vowels (from #ucla) with examples and their #phonetic symbols (#ipa). The IPA is useful but controversial since there are euro-centric biases in its representation.
#vowels are cool since the range of them is huge. Some languages, like #hawaiian have 3, while #xoo has 31.

Usually, the less sounds in a language, the more complex the tone or word structure and the reverse.

Check out info on your language's sounds: phoible.org!
CORRECTION: #hawaiian has 5 vowels. Oops. However, many other #languages have 3 vowel systems, like #cheyenne
