A syllable is an unbroken sound in a word, like dog, re, or ment. Polysyllabic words are words that have more than three syllables. Examples of polysyllabic words are articulation (five syllables), impossible (four syllables), invitation (four syllables), alligator (four syllables). Many polysyllabic words are complicated, like onomatopoeia, electromagnetism, and polysyllabic.

Learning to distinguish syllables in words is an important part of proper pronunciation and learning to read, especially technical and informational texts which often contain a considerable amount of polysllabic words.
