In a similar way both A Y and E Y can make the "a" sound, as in the words on this disk:
fray * pray * prey * spray * tray * fey * grey
In the words pray (as in "prayer") and prey (E Y ending) (as in "bird of prey") we meet the double brick P R and the word "spray" introduces the triple brick S P R.

(pause) Yes, they are:
fray * pray * prey * spray * tray * fey * grey * gray
