तैर 'to swim' is mispronounced; it is diphthongized.

You're right. It is being pronounced as a diphthong which is the original Sanskrit pronunciation (this is why ै is romanised as 'ai'). It is still pronounced that way by speakers of certain Hindi dialects but the standard Hindi pronunciation is different.
