There are 7 types of syllables that occur in all words of the English language. Every word can be broken down into these syllables. These 7 syllables include: closed, open, magic e, vowel teams, r-controlled, dipthongs and consonant le. After teaching each syllable type, having these posters readily available for reference in your classroom can help your students. The Make, Take & Teach 7 Syllables Types Classroom Posters can be downloaded for free in my TpT store.

Wow . . . the hive-mind truly is impressive. The best I could come up with was “anti-globalization.” (Then again, that’s better than my best 16-letter word, which was “underwaterfridge.”)
Around the office here, it’s “disintermediation”, but we may not be typical 😉

Finnish is even worse.
English is a pussy language in this department. In Scandinavian languages you can, in principle, pile up as many nouns after one another in one word as you wish until it becomes unreadable.

Examples:

  • bird, car, cart, corn, first, for, fur, her, star, yard

In the following words, only the bolded syllables are diphthong syllables:

  • farming, varnish, caterpillar

Here is a list of two-syllable words:

  • able, alive, apple, away, better, broken, city, country, daily, early, easy, even, evil, fifty, forward, freedom, future, happy, human, hungry, joyful, language, little, loving, lucky, many, music, nature, office, open, other, over, party, perfect, picture, public, pumpkin, safe, simple, solid, special, stupid, sugar, thirsty, ugly, welcome, woman

These words are described as “disyllabic” or “dissyllabic” (avoid “bisyllabic”).

Children may learn about syllables through writing haikus. A haiku is a Japanese poem with three lines, the first containing 5 syllables, the second containing 7 syllables and the third containing 5 syllables.
Children in Key Stage 1 will be expected to read words of two syllables. They may be shown how to split the words up into syllables, in order to help them sound them out. For example: if they are shown the word ‘thunder’ and get stuck, a teach may cover the second half of the word (‘der’) and ask them to just sound out the first syllable. Once they have managed this, they uncover the rest of the word and ask them to sound this out.

(a) A line of verse is referred to in Spanish as un verso. Lines may be of any length, but the most commonly used forms have 6, 7, 8, 11 or 14 syllables.
Lines of up to 8 syllables are known as versos de arte menor; those of 9, 10 or 11 syllables are known as versos de arte mayor. Lines of more than 11 syllables are versos compuestos, consisting of two hemistiquios (hemistichs) divided by a real or notional pause known as a cesura (caesura).
Sinalefa: the final vowel of one word normally combines with the initial vowel of the following word to form a single syllable, regardless of punctuation (in normal speech, a pause does of course prevent sinalefa, but for the purpose of scansion punctuation is usually ignored):

Here is sample dialogue for demonstrating to your student what a syllable is:
There are six types of syllables:

We can see that Japanese draws the line between what is phonotactically possible and what is not in a very different place than English does.
Let’s go back to our Lexies in an early stage of their word development. They have vowels and consonants, and their word forms consist of one or two syllables. Consider the possible word form /bago/. Without changing the vowels and consonants, how would it be possible to make this pair of syllables into more than one distinguishable word?
