ABSTRACT
During the Lithuanian language classes students, seeking to develop appropriate language skills, very often cannot successfully put into practice the use of long and short vowels and nasal-letter spelling rules. Therefore, this article discusses the regular pronunciation and accentuation norms of adjustment possibilities of studying nasal vowels in related roots of the words in everyday usage and written language. It is important to draw students' attention to the fact that letters written with a diacritical mark mean longer vowels. Consequently, the words having diacritical marks, should be pronounced correctly. There are cases when pupils, being familiar with these rules, start writing letters with a diacritical mark where they should not be used. This fact witnesses the lack of awareness of phonetic basics. It is important that school students, especially in 5 - 6 classes, should learn well how to distinguish parts of speech and their morphological features and understand the essence of word formation. A successful way to achieve this is by presenting proper models. For example, students after being shown a model which clearly demonstrates that the verb in the past frequentative or future tense also verbs in imperative and subjunctive mood are made from the infinitive stem, reduce making spelling mistakes and enables them to use correctly long or short vowels, or letters with diacritical marks in the words with related roots. Frequently in school-Lithuanian language textbooks or reference books in addition to the rules there are given examples of so-called exceptions. Unfortunately, they are not always based on evidence - on the contrary, additional information just leads to confusion and distract students' attention. Then it is impossible to avoid mistakes. This is particularly true about the words with a diacritical mark in hindred words. In such a situation it is necessary that the training materials in Lithuanian language classes were properly structured and presented in the most attractive, simple and clear way. It is worth remembering that the integration of motivated phonetic accentuating basics into morphology and lexical course allows students to show possible results, that is their own achievements of positive change by improving the spelling as well as regular verbal skills.
