The two lists of three-syllable words at the top are used in the OnTrack Reading Multisyllable Method. The first list contains 55 words on four pages separated into chunks according to the method’s Main Rule and Three Exceptions. The second list contains 90 words on two pages presented as normally appearing words (called the read/chunk/spell list.)
Again, all of the 3-syllable words are chunked according to the application of the Main Rule and the Three Exceptions. As was the case before, direct your child to try the First Vowel Sounds on the first attempt at reading the word unless he already knows the word and reads it accurately.

The vowels are “a,e,i,o, and u”; also sometimes “y” & “w”. This also includes the diphthongs “oi,oy,ou,ow,au,aw, oo” and many others.
The consonants are all the other letters which stop or limit the flow of air from the throat in speech. They are: “b,c,d,f,g,h,j,k,l,m,n,p,qu,r,s,t,v,w,x,y,z,ch,sh,th,ph,wh, ng, and gh”.

Several other word endings decide word stress. They are –al, –gy, –cy, –ty and –phy. For these, the stress is on the third-to-last syllable.
A syllable is a word or a word segment that is pronounced as a single sound. Some words have one syllable (including cat, dog, fish, and walk). Some words have two syllables (including apple, orange, and walking). Some words have three syllables (including syllable, important, and excellent). Some words have more.

So while reduced vowels and schwa seem to make words difficult to pronounce, they actually make the pronunciation much more predictable. The hardest part now is knowing which syllable to stress. There are patterns for this, also, although we’re not going to get into them today. If you’re curious, you can visit the stress lessons on Pronuncian.com. There isn’t a pattern for every word, but quite a few do have patterns, and understanding those patterns can make understanding pronunciation a lot easier!
To everyone out there celebrating the holidays right now, we want to wish you a safe, peaceful, and fun holiday season. And we hope that the only stress you are thinking about right now is syllable stress, and not emotional stress. We’ll talk again in 2013, so if you’re celebrating New Year’s on December 31th, have a wonderfully happy New Year’s celebration, too.
Listen to the words in each pair, and then decide whether the two words in each pair have the same stress pattern. Choose ” S ” for the same or ” D ” for different.
