* Spanish interjections "!ey!", "!ay!", "!au!" could be used to practice with problems with English diphthongs

Twenty English-speaking participants (potentially more by the time the paper is presented) divided into three proficiency levels completed a syllabification task for a set of Spanish words, half cognates and half non-cognates, the purpose being to collect their intuitions about vocalic sequences that native speakers judge as diphthongs
. Participants' production was also recorded and analyzed acoustically for diphthong
duration and formant contours of vocalic transitions.
The test results showed that the success rate of voice input was over 98%, and the accuracy rate of spoken voices of monophthong words, diphthong
words and polysyllabic words was 97.15%, 94.96% and 93.62% respectively, suggesting that the system could accurately input and score English learners ' spoken English, and assist English pronunciation.
No matter what the note duration is, the first syllable of "Euridice" should always be sung as a falling diphthong
in Italian, not a rising one.
[Therefore, theory dictates that this should be scanned in the following manner: necto spondee, tatamen dactyl, illepri dactyl, orpraee dactyl, with the diphthong
shortened by the following vowel, unteca rina dactyl and spondee, which end the line.
In all ISP variant studied there were only three diphthong
The V positions in the tables below may be filled either by singleton short vowels or a member of a diphthong
that fits a V.(C)V profile, i.e., the second member in V1 position, or the first in V2 position.
Stressing of the diphthong
highly influence visualization of the speech since stressed syllable is more expressive then others.
is defined as a sound which consists of `a movement of glide from one vowel to another' (Roach, 2000).
A tendency to shorten diphthongs
and to leave out the second element in a diphthong
