# My first attempt at a Vowelburger™ puzzle

You can find the other Vowelburger™ Riddles here

I ordered 9 Vowelburgers™ with buns and meat at the linguistic restaurant - help me identify each one from the description on the menu!

$$\def\S#1#2{\Space{#1}{20px}{#2px}}\def\P#1{\V{#1em}}\def\V#1{\S{#1}{9}} \def\T{\textbf{Meat}}\def\NT{\textbf{Vowelburger}^{\;\!™}\ }\displaystyle \smash{\lower{29px}\bbox[orange]{\phantom{\rlap{rubio.2020.01.21-custom}\S{6px}{0} \begin{array}{cc}\T&\NT\\\end{array}}}}\atop\def\V#1{\S{#1}{5}} \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline\T&\NT\\\hline % ~\text{???}&\text{catch}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{nickname}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{seal}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{type}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{sharp}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{stem}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{chip}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{mammal}\\\hline ~\text{???}&\text{shape}\\\hline \end{array}$$

The buns are pulmonic consonants and the meats are vowels so the transcription of the Vowelburgers™ may not share the same consonants.

HOWEVER: Today, the restaurant is offering a special deal: burgers with two patties are also available. In other words, the meat can also be diphthongs.

What burgers did I order? Write your answers either as English words or using the IPA.

$$k$$ and $$n$$

and the burgers are

catch: con (not sure if this works?)
nickname: Ken (probably, thanks @JeremyDover)
seal: can (canning food is sort of sealing it)
type: kin
sharp: keen
stem: cane
chip: coin (as in poker chips)
mammal: kine
shape: cone
