In phonetics, a diphthong is a gliding vowel with a continuous transition from one position to another during articulation. Diphthongs are to be compared with so-called pure vowels, which are vowels that do not change or are in a constant state.
Use decodable readers so that kids can practise diphthongs several times.
Use magnetic letters, tiles, or another medium to practise word building.
Before reading a decodable book, have pupils underline, circle, or highlight diphthong terms.
Gimson There are eight diphthong sounds in English. Feel free to pick your favourite set! Unless it doesn't, as in "wood" or "say," an English diphthong usually has a lengthy sound. Diphthongs in English, like many other aspects of the language, must be memorised.
A diphthong is a vowel that has two distinct targets: the tongue (and/or other components of the speech apparatus) moves during the vowel's pronunciation. The phrase "no highway cowboy" (/no hawe kab/) includes five unique diphthongs, one in each syllable in most dialects of English.
Many languages have diphthongs, in which we move our articulators while producing the vowel, in addition to plain vowels. This gives the sound a different contour at the finish than it did at the beginning.
