    Words like dog, gone, bold and born don't sound like long o as in no. Are they long or short? For dog- the dictionary has an upside-down u above the o. But what does that mean- are they long or short?

    Upside down u means short.  Straight line means long. 

    When you see that v upside down on top of a word..that means it has a short sound...this is the best way to find out about some of the sounds..check the other ones as well
