Hi, i am not very familiar with "syllable", how to divide it in a phonetic symbol? thanks.
thanks, i have found the answer from the internet, i learned how many syllables in one word, but i am still confused with how to divide these syllables. please help me. thanks.
Here's some simple rules
1. Do it the way your dictionary does it.
2. Split 2-syllable words between consonants: con.vert, im.press, tran.quil.
3. Split between vowels if there is a definite sound change: tri.al, be.ing, but don't split diphthongs. Paint, height, mound are mono-syllablic.
4. Divide before a single consonant rather than after: ho.bo (not hob.o), zu.lu
In some cases, there will always be disagreement, eg. where to divide "rhythm", or is it one syllable?
If you are a typist, and have to know this, use your dictionary unless your boss tells you otherwise, in which case, he should provide a syllabification guide. There's no other reason you really need to know this in order to learn English. Is there?
thanks, i got it. i just the beginner who learns english. hehe. so i don't need to know it clearly, do i? hehe.
