A diphthong, or gliding vowel, refers to two vowel sounds occurring within the same syllable. Some examples of diphthong are loud, lair and light.

purevowels are vowel sounds where the tongue maintains the same vowel position throughout for example the vowel sound in the word tea.Whereas a diphthong is a glide from one vowel position to another within the same syllable,examples of diphthong are : pale, boy,house,date,cow.

American English doesn't typically use dipthongs like 'ae', and would spell it 'cecum'.
