SYLLABLE

In the language this is item of the articulation, containing single vowel, or a vowel in combination with one or more consonants. The length of the sentence which is spoken is more often used as a standard of comparison in psycholinguistic research.

SYLLABLE: "Example: Word dog is monosyllable because it contains just one syllable."
