In the choral music world, it's a very common term when directors are telling their choirs what vowel to emphasize during a long, held-out sung word. Some vowel sounds are more desirable than others.

I have seen that in hymnals, and I recall it from music class when I was a kid.

But ... my point with this post was that this dipthong is not pronounced as one of the various "a" sounds followed by one of the various "e" sounds. Rather, it's pronounced as the long "i", as in "Hi".
