Diction - diphthongs fall 2012

  2. 2. defined The word “diphthong” comes from Greek and means “two sounds.” The term refers to the use of two vowel sounds in a single syllable. The characteristic of the diphthong that is different from single vowels in consecutive syllables is the movement from one vowel to another. When we form or hear a diphthong there are three factors:  PRIMARY VOWEL SOUND  QUICK MOVEMENT  SECONDARY VOWEL SOUND
  3. 3. In practice InEnglish the first vowel is stressed, and is lengthened so that it is sung for most of the duration of the note on which it occurs. The second vowel is made less precisely, it is unstressed and it is short. Note: this is different from Italian consecutive vowels.
