What is a Syllable?

A syllable is a unit of pronunciation that is made up of either a vowel sound alone or a vowel and one or more consonant sounds. Notice that (with a few rare exceptions) every syllable contains at least one vowel (a, e, i, o or u) or vowel sound. Every word is made from one, two, three or more syllables
