Un diptongo es un sonido que es percibido como la unión de dos vocales en una misma sílaba. En un diptongo los formantes acústicos tienen una transición suave desde un punto del área vocálica a otro, lo que les da su naturaleza de diptongos. Esto corresponde a una articulación en que la lengua se mueve entre distintos puntos durante la emisión del diptongo. Los dos puntos extremos de la articulación son percibidos como las 2 vocales que forman el diptongo.

Earth Day is considered the largest civic observance in the world. Because of this day, more and more people each year are recognizing the need to address environmental issues on not just a yearly basis but also in their everyday lives. One of the biggest impacts Earth Day has had is making more people aware of global warming and changing weather patterns. Many scientists claim this is occurring due to increased levels of toxins in the air from gasoline, coal, and other substances that affect the air and water. This then affects the water, amount of sunlight received, and precipitation, thus affecting the weather. Events like those organized by the Earth Day Network and other organizations around the world help bring this important issue to light.
