Syllabification of Consonant Clusters Across Internal Word Boundaries in English Compound Words

Auther : Issam M. Abu-Salim

This paper deals with the principles responsible for the syllabification of consonant clusters across internal word boundaries in compound words in English. It shows, among other things, that the interword morphological boundary in compound words is not strong enough to prevent the syllabification mechanism from moving consonants from one member of the compound to another. The syllabification rules in this case are, therefore, comparable to those responsible for the syllabification of intervocalic consonant clusters in simple words in English. The paper also shows that progressive syllabification is far more common and more natural than regressive syllabification.
