Best Answer

There are 5/6 vowels.

A E I O U are the main ones. I can only assume you're refering to Y. A half vowel, half consenant.

Yes. A diptongo, or diphthong, is when an unstressed weak vowel and a strong vowel are together in the same syllable. The weak vowels are I, U, and Y. The strong vowels are A, E, and O. In this example the ió makes a diphthong because the i is a weak vowel and is not accented, the o is a strong vowel, and they are both together in the same syllable. This simply means that when pronouncing ió you treat it as one syllable with the sound "yo".
