Diphthong

A gliding monosyllabic speech sound (as the vowel combination at the end of toy) that starts at or near the articulatory position for one vowel and moves to or toward the position of another.

Ah yez ... you're bringing me right back to my days as a teacher. It's AMAZING the 'stuph' logged in my brain from all those years in the classroom. Loved your Humor on Monday too. Thanks for the chuckles.
Hugs and blessings,
