What are the types of syllables with explanation and examples

Dear Student,

The following will give you the types of syllables and their explanation.Also,example of each type is given-

There are six types of syllables:
1)A closed syllable ends in a consonant. The vowel has a short vowel sound, as in the word bat.
2)An open syllable ends in a vowel. The vowel has a long vowel sound, as in the first syllable of apron.
3)A vowel-consonant-e syllable is typically found at the end of a word. The final e is silent and makes the next vowel before it long, as in the word name.
4)A vowel team syllable has two vowels next to each other that together say a new sound, as in the word south.
5)A consonant+l-e syllable is found in words like handle, puzzle, and middle.
6) An r-controlled syllable contains a vowel followed by the letter r. The r controls the vowel and changes the way it is pronounced, as in the word car.
