English Language: Key To Professional Success: Syllables Part 3

Pooja Gupte
06 Aug 0 0

Hello Everyone

Hope you tried my last two tips and have found a significant difference in the way you sound. Let us get a little deeper into syllables this time. 

Let us do a quick recap :

  • Syllables are the smallest part of speech.
  • Several syllables form a word.
  • Saying each syllable greatly clarifies your speech.

Let us take an example.

PHOTOGRAPHY

Let us now break it up into syllables.

PHO - TO - GRA - PHY

The word breaks up into four syllables. These are four bits of sound that we can speak. Now let us take these separately and see what makes them up.

  • PHO - consonant - consonant - vowel
  • TO - consonant - vowel
  • GRA - consonant - consonant - vowel
  • PHY - consonant - consonant-vowel (Y is sometimes a vowel)

Every syllable has a vowel. The sounds of the syllables are the sound of the vowels. Once we understand and master the vowel sounds, we can further improve our pronunciation. The number of vowels in a syllable decides the pronunciation. 

In the next lesson, we will look at how the different number of vowels create different sounds and impact pronunciation until then.
