    Oh, okay. I thought the OP meant an actual globe, not the word globe.

    To the OP, a better way to write your question, so that everyone can understand it, would be "What is the special sound in the word globe".

    Now we just have to figure out what she means by "special sound" and we're all set. I'm assuming she means the "o" in globe, which is pronounce "o" because of the "e" at the end of the word. Without the "e" at the end, the "o" would be pronounced more like"ah".

    Hard to explain online. :(

    The e at the end makes the o = long o, the sound of o.

    lobe or lob
    cone or con
    lone or Lon
    tone or ton

    I call it "the magic e". It can change the sound of a vowel. :)

    Well then, that would make it pretty special. So I think we now know what the "special sound" is. :)

    My students never talk about Sesame Street. Sad, but it may because they are too old now. I can't figure out the songs they sing, either. So, I ask their parents to inform me. That's when I feel old!

    It was my two sons (b. 1970 and 1975) who watched SS. The alphabet hadn't been invented yet when I was little.
