The main rules of syllabication are:
- If a word contains a pair of consonants, the syllabic demarcation in the word should divide those two consonants.
- If a word contains a series of sequential consonants, consonants that work together to make a sound (or blend) should be kept together.
What is the purpose of syllabication?
Syllabication teaches students to read unknown words, increases their sight-word vocabulary, and aids in learning how to spell words (Torgesen, 2004; Moats, 2001; Curtis & Longo, 1999).
