TOPIC: Identifying Syllables

Definition of Syllable

A syllable is the smallest possible combination of consonants and vowels that we can pronounce.

Different languages have their own types of syllables. A syllable is determined by the arrangement of consonants and vowels. There are three parts to a syllable: the release (beginning), the nucleus (the centre/middle or peak) and the arrest.

Types of Words According to Number of Syllables

Just as consonants and vowels combine to form syllables, so are syllables combined to form words.
