Book Excerpt

alem ponitur. Nam consonans non potest esse, quia ante se habet alteram consonantem, id est +q+; vocalis esse non potest, quia sequitur illam vocalis, ut quare, quomodo.

DIPHTHONGS.

In Marius Victorinus we find diphthongs thus defined:

[Mar. Vict. Gaisford, I. v. 54.] Duae inter se vocales jugatae ac sub unius vocis enuntiatione prolatae syllabam faciunt natura longam, quam Graeci diphthongon vocant, veluti geminae vocis unum sonum, ut +ae+, +oe+, +au+.

And more fully in the following paragraph:

[Mar. Vict. Gaisford, I. v. 6.] Sunt longae naturaliter syllabae, cum duae vocales junguntur, quas syllabas Graeci diphthongos vocant; ut +ae+, +oe+, +au+, +eu+, +ei+: nam illae diphthongi non sunt quae fiunt per vocales loco consonantium positas; ut +ia+, +ie+, +ii+, +io+, +iu+, +va+, +ve+, +vi+, +vo+, +vu+.

Of these diphthongs +eu+ occurs,--except in Greek words,--only in heus, heu, eheu; in seu, ceu
