Here are some more names for you to read out loud in order to practice the diphthongs and vowel combinations that you have learned about.
Word stress. Remember: the stress mark is there to let you know where the accented syllable is. It is very important that you put the word stress on the correct syllable.
To make it easier for you to see how each syllable contains just one vowel or one diphthong, the names have been broken up into syllables for you here. You should first practice sounding out the words and then try copying them out in writing, paying close attention to the pronunciation of each vowel or diphthong, and making sure you stress the accented syllable.
Okay, now that you are able to recognize and pronounce these diphthongs, you are ready for some other vowel forms: Nasalized Vowels and Semivowels.
