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 descendant of Old English long u was respelled as ⟨ou⟩), most commonly represents /juː/ (as in ‘mule’), reducing to /uː/ after ⟨r⟩ (as in ‘rule’), ⟨j⟩ (as in ‘June’) 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’.
A coloring book (or colouring book, or colouring page) is a type of book containing line art to which people are intended to add color using crayons, colored pencils, marker pens, paint or other artistic media. Traditional coloring books and coloring pages are printed on paper or card. Some coloring books have perforated edges so their pages can be removed from the books and used as individual sheets. Others may include a story line and so are intended to be left intact. Today many children’s coloring books feature popular cartoon characters. They are often used as promotional materials for animated motion pictures. Coloring books may also incorporate other activities such as connect the dots, mazes and other puzzles. Some also incorporate the use of stickers.
Father’s Day is a celebration honoring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. In Catholic countries of Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 (Saint Joseph’s Day) since the Middle Ages. This celebration was brought by the Spanish and Portuguese to Latin America, where March 19 is often still used for it, though many countries in Europe and the Americas have adopted the U. S. date, which is the third Sunday of June. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in the months of March, April and June according to the home nation’s customs. It complements similar celebrations honoring family members, such as Mother’s Day, Siblings Day and Grandparents’ Day.
