Syllabication

All words have a syllable.  A syllable is the part of the word that is said out loud as a single sound.  Some words have one syllable such as "ball" and some words have two syllables such as "baseball."  Many words have more than one or two syllables.  Syllables can help you pronounce a word you do not know when you first see it.

Look at the two and three syllable words below.
