LESSON 20TH - To divide into syllables

Snow = NEVE = NE-VE

Hand = MANO = MA-NO

Pencil = MATITA = MA-TI -TA

Sometimes vowel at the beginning of a word stay alone ...

Goose = OCA = O-CA

Isle = ISOLA = I-SO-LA

But sometimes it is different, look at the example:

Tree = ALBERO = AL -BE- RO

Shadow = OMBRA =  OM-BRA

Two attached consonants are usually separted:

Lamp = LAMPADA = LAM-PA-DA

Bomb = BOMBA = BOM-BA

Also double consonants are separated:

Mum = MAMMA = MAM-MA

Hut = CAPPELLO = CAP-PEL-LO

Carpet = TAPPETO = TAP-PE-TO

When "S" is followed by a consonant, it always follows that consonant:

Gym = PALESTRA = PA-LE-STRA

Window = FINESTRA = FI-NE-STRA

Fly = MOSCA = MO-SCA

With sounds like "GL", "SC", "GN", "FR", "PR" .. consonants are NEVER separated:

Spider = RAGNO = RA-GNO

Fish = PESCE = PE-SCE

Rabbit = CONIGLIO = CO-NI-GLIO
