Structure of a valid word in Syttu
This public article was written by Ciekce, and last updated on 17 Jun 2017, 17:39.

This article is a work in progress! Check back later in case any changes have occurred.
The syllable structure is CV(C), where C is any consonant and V is any vowel (short or long) or diphthong. Word-initial syllables take the form (C)V(C).

Where there is a single consonant in between two vowels, such as in "típos", the consonant is part of the second syllable to preserve CV(C), otherwise there would be no onset. In the case of a word such as "mýttetu", the consonant cluster <tt> is split across syllables, so the word is mýt.te.tu. This is true of any cluster of two consonants, whether the same consonant or not.
