Spanish Diphthongs

What Are Spanish Diphthongs?

Spanish vowels which are combined to form one syllable are called Spanish diphthongs. They normally contain a strong vowel such as the letter "O" or "A" followed by a weaker sounding vowel (the other vowels). You can also have the opposite of that as well. A weak vowel that is followed by a strong vowel is also a diphthong. You can even have two weak vowels. If you do have two weak vowels, the second vowel is stressed. Diphthongs are never divided but only pronounced as one. Spanish Accent Marks>>
