TOPIC: The Vowel Sounds /iə/ and /eə/

Description of the Vowel Sounds /iə/ and /eə/

These two sounds are diphthongs meaning that they have double sounds. The double sounds are achieved through a glide from the initial sound to the other through the process of their articulation. Thus we have the sound /iə/ as we have in words like

/iə/ beard, tear, here, cheer.

/eə/ air, pear, their, share.

Listen to your teacher pronounce these sounds and repeat after him/her.


  1. Identify the diphthongs in the following words: really, here, heir, near, weird, idea, weird, air.

ASPECT: Structure
