Sorry it's taken me so long to reply u^ is pronounced /@/. The other
vowels with circumflex are also central.
i^ is barred i
e^ is "r-colored" @
u^ is @
a^ is a very low central vowel -- a lowered and centralized /a/
Also, the doubled vowels are not long versions of the vowels, but
different vowel qualities.
