Theory:

Syllabification refers to the process of division of words into smaller parts, known as syllables - based on the sounds they produce. The method involves splitting of words into units of sounds or sounds of vowels. A syllable is a unit of pronunciation having one vowel sound.
Example:
1. Run - "U" is the vowel that produces a syllable. Therefore, the word had one syllable.
2. Acting - Act-ing: "A" and "I" are the vowels that produces two different sounds. Therefore, there are two syllables in this word.
3. Australia - Au-stra-lia: has "Au" producing a sound, "stra" producing a sound, "Lia" producing a sound; therefore, there are three syllables in this word.
Important!
In simple words, syllabifying is the process of dividing the words according to the vowel sounds.
Process of syllabification:

1. Read the word
2. Identify the vowels.
3. Break the words according to the vowel sounds.
