What is a diphthong and how to teach diphthongs.
I just started a page devoted to diphthongs…inspired by two little ones whom I am presently seeing for speech therapy. A diphthong is a vowel that actually consists of two vowels in one syllable. For example, when you say the word bye….the long I sound in the word bye is considered to be a diphthong….because it consists of these two sounds: ah…then long E.
I have not written about how to teach diphthongs….I have just explained the diphthongs……what they sound like….and still have to write more about the placement of your tongue, lips and jaw during production of the 8 diphthongs.
Have fun with your little one or big one!
