    syllables collection

    Hi.
    I started to develop a technique usefull to memorise correct spelling etc.
    I am looking for a list of syllables used in English language.
    Do you have something like that?
    I am a kind of mind bender (also ventriloquist- the only in Poland) and memorise a lot of words during a day. But- I have found something what can be very usefull (maybe only for me) and helpfull to remember not only hundred words daily with their meaning but also their spellin (especially when words are very difficult and strange like... indefetingable...ugh:))

    I will be glad if you could help me with that a little bit.
    I am not looking for grammar and explanation.
    I am developing only a tool to memorise words as it is. That's it.

    so if you could help me a little bit with that I could be very thankfull.
    I have such list like
    at
    ata
    ate
    atu
    ati and so on in Polish language... such 'bits" bits of information but it's a little different for our language.
    I am looking only for written list.
    hat I can say- with tool I try to develop you could easy memorise even very very very loooooong and strange words you have ever seen.
    Like as example... germans words built by connecting even several words. And of course with proper spelling.
    Can you help me?

    First of all, it's indefatigable. :wink:

    A logophile is a lover of words. A bibliophile is a lover of books. An ailurophile is a lover of cats. (That last one is totally ridiculous.)

    :wink:
