I am having a problem understanding the phonetic and phonological
differences between properties of English vowels and, assuming there are
differences, what use are they? Also, where does vowel length fall in this
distinction?

In almost every paper or article, the topic seems to be slippery. I could
not find any source talking about this topic in a satisfactory way.

Can any one refer me to any papers or sources or help in this area?
