    I'm sure you would earn your teacher's unconditional admiration if you found some with 4! ;)

    Look for words ending in al, tle, ble, or ism — that will give you a place to start. All you have to do then is find one with a syllabic consonant in addition to one of those endings.

    Re: two syllabic

    unconditional , it is a more that two syllabic consonant ,unconditional /ənkəndɪʃənəl/

    usually when you have nasals /m, n, ŋ/or approximates /l, r, w, j/ preceded by weak vowel /ə/, these consonants will be syllabic .
    /ənkəndɪʃənəl/ becomes /nkndɪʃnl/.

    I hope that you get the meaning
