2. Syllable, stress and intonation

This issue deals with the syllable, which is the succession of sounds that are pronounced at the same time and can have three parts: explosive initialvocal core, final implosive phase.

They come in two types, open and closed. In the section concerning stress, we will distinguish the prosodic or intensity stress and the graphic stress or ‘tilde’. Within the intensity, the syllables can be tonic if they have voice strength or atonic if they do not carry it. Finally, in the intonation section, we will see the emphatic function with which a word is stressed or emphasized so that the listener pays closer attention to it.
