    That narrows down the field!

    Hi [1], say [2] boy [3], now [4] here's [5] where [6] to go [7] if your* pronunciation is poor [8]: An illustrated note on diphthongs

    b

    PS * In Edinburgh, this would be [8]
    PPS mara's is much better

    Thanks. It all looks very pretty, but it needs to be handled with care. http://www.superteacherworksheets.co...-sentences.pdf, for example, deals with digraphs (which it calls 'diphthongs'): 'AU is the diphthong in "haul"'??? So what's the diphthong in 'howl?

    This resource is for teaching very young native speakers how to spell.
