9 diphthongs [ai, ei, ao, ou, ia, ie, ua, uo, ye] for 10 SC and 20 ASH speakers with medium accent were compared in this paper. In order to find out the differences in diphthongs between SC and ASH, the vowel charts and the formant patterns were plotted for them. Finally, comparative distinctions were obtained and analyzed.
