It is not intended to be an adequate linguistic analysis of the GVS.Orthographically, long vowels in English are often marked Vowels are pronounced in different areas of the mouth.If you hold your chin while going through the vowel sounds, you'll notice your chin rises and falls.
Prior to the time of Queen Elizabeth I and Shakespeare, English speakers pronounced the vowels about the same as other speakers, and not too differently from the way the Romans would have pronounced Latin.
That's probably how English speakers in, say, Chaucer's time, would have pronounced their vowels.
The Great Vowel Shift affected only the long (or "tense") vowels. This is the general process, here used to explain the pronunciation of Latin to English-speakers.
Gill I can say to you that Latin vowels are pronounced just as they are written, but you probably still won't know how to pronounce them since you probably think that applies to English.
For example, if I say the sound of the "a" in the word "back" is different from the sound of the "a" in the word "ward", you may have to think about it.
There would not be that distinction in the Latin "a". Not like the English letter I at all, but more like the English letter E.
Even if you can feel that one of the a-vowels is pronounced further back in the mouth, there are still items about English that you may not be aware of unless you have studied Romance languages. That's because English has experienced a vowel shift so dramatic it is called the Great Vowel Shift (GVS).
