Humans seem to need syllables as a way of segmenting the stream of speech and giving it a rhythm of strong and weak beats, as we hear in music. Syllables do not serve any meaning-signalling function in language; they exist only to make speech easier for the brain to process.
This lesson discovers the principles that govern the organization of sounds in the English language and explains the variations that occur. It focuses on sound combinations and structure of the English syllable.
