Define syllable



noun
  • A syllable is the sound of a vowel (A, E, I, O, U) that is created when pronouncing the letters A, E, I, O, U, or Y.
  • The letter "Y" is a vowel only if it creates an A, E, I, O, or U sound.
  • When two (or more) vowels are next to each other, the number of syllables depends on the number of vowel sounds.
  • If a vowel is silent, it is not counted as a syllable.
  • The number of times that you hear the sound of a vowel is the number of syllables in a word.
  • Does the word end with "le" or "les?" This is a syllable if the letter before the "le" is a consonant.
