A syllable is a single, unbroken sound of a spoken (or written) word. Syllables usually contain a vowel and accompanying consonants. Sometimes syllables are referred to as the ‘beats’ of spoken language.

 

 

  • Cat   has one syllable (words of one syllable are monosyllabic)
  • Water   has two syllables (wa / ter)
  • Computer   has three syllables (com / pu / ter)
  • Category   has four syllables (cat / e / gor / y)
