In phonetics, a diphthong is a vowel in which there is a noticeable sound change within the same syllable. (In contrast, a single or simple vowel is known as a monophthong.) Adjective: diphthongal.

The process of moving from one vowel sound to another is called gliding, and thus another name for diphthong is gliding vowel. Also known as a compound vowel, a complex vowel, and a moving vowel.

Ditongo é o nome que se dá à combinação de um som vocálico com um som semivocálico emitidos num só esforço de voz. O ditongo diferencia-se do hiato pelo fato de este último ser constituído por duas vogais e ser pronunciado na mesma sílaba.

Quando a vogal antecede a semivogal denomina-se ditongo decrescente.
