A syllable is a unit of spoken language made up of a continuous sound, for example, <em>run</em> has one syllable and <em>pocket</em> has two syllables. Four-year-olds are also able to determine which words rhyme.</p><p>By six years, many children can break words down into individual sounds or phonemes. Phonemes are the most basic units of speech sound that differentiate a word. The /m/ in <em>mat</em> and the /b/ in <em>bat</em> are phonemes. Children at this age are also able to determine whether pairs of words start or end with the same sound.</p><p>By seven years, most children can break words up by syllable and phoneme. </p><p>In general, children between the ages of three and eight will develop the following specific phonological sub-skills:</p><ul><li>recognize that sentences are made up of words</li><li>recognize whether the sounds of words are the same or different. For example, the child understands that <em>bat</em> and <em></em><em>man,</em><em>bat</em><em></em> and <em>ball</em>, and <em>cat</em> and <em>bat</em> are different.</li><li>recognize rhymes such as <em>ball</em> and <em>wall</em></li><li>generate rhymes </li><li>isolate the first sound in a word; recognize that words begin with the same sound, for example, <em>ball</em> starts with “b,” <em>bat</em> also starts with “b”</li><li>isolate final sounds in words; recognize that words have the same final sound, for example, <em>plant</em> ends in “t”; <em>mat</em> and <em>cat</em> also end in “t”</li><li>recognize different medial sounds, for example, the middle sound in <em>bat</em> is “a”; the middle sound in <em>fun</em> is “u”</li><li>identify the syllables of a word by clapping or rhythmic speech: pock-et</li><li>identify the number of sounds in a word, for example, the word <em>cat</em> has three sounds <em>c-a-t</em></li><li>remove sounds from words and tell you what remains, for example, “park” without <em>“p”</em> is “ark”; “winter” without “<em>t” is</em> “winner”​.</li></ul><p>If your child is showing <a href="/Article?contentid=725&language=English">signs of phonological problems</a>, there are various ways you can <a href="/Article?contentid=726&language=English">help your child develop phonological awareness</a>.
