Rfv-sense. Ligature. I think that's what it means by "joined vowels". Mglovesfun (talk) 10:06, 30 June 2010 (UTC)

www.dictionary.com mentions diphthong as synonym to both digraph and ligature. --Hekaheka 11:29, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
A "vowel digraph or ligature" sense would be citeable, but "vowel ligature" specifically is trickier. Consider, for example:
here it happens to be referring to a vowel ligature, but it's being contrasted with single vowel, which leads me to suspect that the writer thinks of <æ> as a digraph.

See [1][2], BTW, for two other cites supporting "a vowel digraph or ligature". —RuakhTALK 16:05, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
Rewritten and cited per my comments above. —RuakhTALK 22:52, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
