Flashcard Content Overview

A diphthong is a single syllable that combines the sounds of two vowels. For example, consider the word 'round.' It is a one syllable word, but the vowel sound produced in the middle of it is neither an 'O' sound, nor a 'U' sound. Rather, the sound it produces is similar to the combination of a short A sliding into a long U sound. The letters 'ou' in the word 'round' are a diphthong.

Diphthongs can be tricky to identify at first. Use this flashcard set to identify diphthongs within words. If you find yourself struggling, say the word out loud and slowly. Listen carefully to the sounds you're making. If a syllable seems to shift or seem longer than another, you may have found a diphthong.
