Resource for sound samples of diphthongs

Post by Nachtuil » 29 Aug 2016 15:00

Is there a good resource anywhere out there for sound samples of various dipthongs and not ones just related to specific languages? For example, I want to know what the /ay/ diphthong would sound like but I can't seem to find it out there. I, perhaps pathetically, can't seem to figure it out on phoible either.

Edit: sorry if this may not be quite the right forum.

I don't know of any site for a collection of diphthongs being pronounced, but for /ay/ you could try listening to any recording of Finnish with 'äy' /æy/ which is pretty similar.
