{{mergefrom|Near-open vowel|discuss=Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Linguistics#Proposal to merge four articles into two|date=July 2019}}{{refimprove|date=April 2008}}{{IPA vowels|class=floatright}}{{IPA notice}}An open vowel is a vowel sound in which the tongue is positioned as far as possible from the roof of the mouth. Open vowels are sometimes also called low vowels (in U.S. terminology WEB, VOWEL QUALITY
publisher=Oxford University Press, 20 April 2017, ) in reference to the low position of the tongue. In the context of the phonology of any particular language, a low vowel can be any vowel that is more open than a mid vowel. That is, open-mid vowels, near-open vowels, and open vowels can all be considered low vowels.

Partial list

The open vowels with dedicated symbols in the International Phonetic Alphabet are: There also are central vowels that do not have dedicated symbols in the IPA: There is no unambiguous way of transcribing the open central vowels. The diaeresis indicates centralization, so {{angbr IPA|ä}} could mean near-front and {{angbr IPA|ɒ̈}} could mean near-back. However, in practice the diaeresis is assumed to mean central, while {{angbr IPA|a̠}} and {{angbr IPA|ɒ̟}} are used for the front and back articulations, respectively.The extremely rare contrast between open front, central and back unrounded vowels has been reported to occur in the Hamont dialect of Limburgish, which features long versions of these sounds, as well as short versions of the open front and back vowels. The short versions do not contrast directly with the open central vowel, which can only be long.{{sfnp|Verhoeven|2007|p=221}}
