I know I have list around somewhere but during a recent adjustment in space at the school I can't seem to find them.
I want to use them for practice. Does anybody have a link or suggestions.
I have all the magic "e" stuff thank you. Looking for other pairs and combinations
This is what I'm looking for:
I'm looking lists focusing on most frequent vocabulary lists.
Thanks a lot.

Daniel Bedingfield claimed that his new album is what it would sound like if Sting, Stevie Wonder and Micheal Jackson were in a basement together - I haven't got the album so I'll have to imagine the sound of a blind bloke and a Geordie kicking the shit out of a pedophile.
Those are just the spelling variations for the short and long vowels, not what I'm looking for.
The other are the magic "e" components, I've got all I need there as well.
In any case thanks for the response.
I'm a going to have to go digging through my papers tomorrow.
If I can't find I should be able to put an adequate list together in a few hours of concentrated work.
I need one
Google ' minimal pairs' or ' vowel minimal pairs'
