We can agree by now that letters do not make words, but segmenting letters make us have meaningful words. Linguistical disabilities and abilities creates differences in our way of communicating information in spite of meanings. When you speak languages, you are probably going to have an ease in learning a new one because all tricks are same, but syllables makes the situation a little different. Attachment and availability things e.g. food, trees, animals, unusual things we are used to doing allow us use it often and that is our nature. Other people prefers to use Th, au, ph, f, i at the end or beginning of a word and that totally their choice as long as that is what makes them happy and keep them at peace. Why border about it and so are they. Don't get confuse because syllable is so close to pronunciation.

Example 1 Au or Ou

Otto: 2 syllables; ot and to

Outhow: 3 syllables; Ou, tho, ow

example 2 th and i

Ariet: 2 syllables; A and riet

Arieth: 3 syllables; A, Rie and th

Arieti(ariet i): 4 syllables; A, rie, ti, i. The confusion here is that other tribes will say rieti while others will say Riet i(with an ie sound)

example 3 w and i

Opio: 2 syllables; opi, io(the two syllables are hardly noticed because it does not end on i but rather makes it a bridge)

Ophiew: 3 syllables; O, phi(similar to an f sound), ew(e u(eiu) sound)

example 5

Nyalupa: 3 syllables; nya, lu and pa

Nyilubai: 4 syllables; nyi, lu, ba and i

nyingeyotayotato: 7 syllables; nyi, nge, yo, a, yo, ta, to
