Snake and Ape
The VCe long /a/ spelling as in gate is a common spelling of the long /a/ vowel sound. There are, however, other spellings of the long /a/ vowel sound. These include ai as in maid, and ay as in play. In some cases, the VCe pattern does not represent the long /a/ vowel sound, as in are, palace, and courage.
