Introduction

The problem of syllable division and formation is very ancient. The first decision of this problem was offered by the ancient Greeks.

They divided words into syllables between the vowel and consonant as they supposed that as many vowels in the word so many syllables.

In the be The auditory image of a syllable division be shown in transcription unknown /۸n`nəun/,liner/lainə/,maker/meikə/. Parts of orthographic and phonetics syllable is not always coincide. For instance the word puzzling from the phonetics view must be divided between /z/and /l/,/p۸z-liŋ/ But from the phonological view boundary between two syllable must be lain between the first letter z and the second one. If there are two or three consonants before –ing these consonants may be separated in within gras-ping, puz-zling. We can say from this examples that problems of syllable division is still actuality.

The main goals of my course paper is phonological analysis: 1) to coincide question of syllable division in English in order to understand mechanisms of syllable division in English. 2)to make analyses of theory syllable division and reveal more correct...
