The composite syllables are syllables those that consist of a vowel and two or more consonants. They differ from simple syllables in that they are only formed from a vowel and a consonant. For this reason, compound syllables are longer than their plain or straightforward counterparts.
A syllable is a linguistic division that forms a word. They consist of at least one vowel and one consonant. They can be monosyllable words (such as sun ) or one of the parts in which a word can be separated when it is said aloud or written (such as co-co-dri-lo).
In this last example, the syllables co, co, and lo would be simple while dri is a syllable already composed, which has one vowel and two consonants.
A syllable that ends in a consonant letter is known as a closed syllable, while a syllable that ends in a vowel letter is called an open syllable.
