  Syllable - encyclopedia article - Citizendium
The syllable is a unit of organisation in phonology, the study of the patterns of sounds and signs in language.
Typically, a syllable consists of a vowel and at least one consonant, though various combinations are possible, including single vowels.
The existence of the syllable as an abstract phonological unit that limits the possible sequences of segments is not uncontroversial, and its use in mainstream linguistics literature has been inconsistent.

  Syllable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A word that consists of a single syllable (like English cat) is called a monosyllable (such a word is monosyllabic), while a word consisting of two syllables (like monkey) is called a disyllable (such a word is disyllabic).
The syllable nucleus is typically a sonorant, usually a vowel sound, in the form of a monophthong, diphthong, or triphthong, but sometimes sonorant consonants like [l] or [r].
A heavy syllable is one with a branching rime or a branching nucleus — this is a metaphor, based on the nucleus or coda having lines that branch in a tree diagram.

 The Syllable
The syllable is a central unit in phonotactic description, although sometimes the principles governing the distribution of phonemes go beyond the confines of a single syllable.
syllable structure, a syllable ending in VC has a branching Rhyme with a non-branching Peak and Coda; and VV is a branching Peak, while VVC is a branching Rhyme with a branching Peak and a non-branching Coda.
This means that, where possible, syllables should be divided in such a way that as many consonants as possible are assigned to the beginning of the syllable to the right (if one thinks in terms of how they are written in transcription), rather than to the end of the syllable to the left.

 Syllable structure
A syllable consists of an onset and a rhyme; a rhyme consists of a stress value, a peak and a coda; and a coda consists of a body and a tail.
She does not class this latter as a separate syllable at all, but rather as a ``coda extension''.
Syllable: == "onset>" "rhyme>" rhyme> == Stress "" "coda>" coda> == "" "" == <> == Null.

 Syllable Structure and the Distribution of Phonemes in English Syllables
Davis (1985), for example, rejected all arguments for internal syllable structure, on the grounds that he was able to find exceptions, however rare, to all properties that had been proposed for specific subsyllabic entities.
For CVC syllables, the main concern is whether the vowel is grouped with the prior consonant (called the onset), with the posterior consonant (the coda), or with neither.
The fact that consonants as a group prefer particular syllable slots is strong enough to be significant even if one factors out the consonants for which there is an absolute, inviolable restriction as to which slot they can go in.

 syllable
The Tone Syllable is always the last or the last but one in the word; e.g.
The tone does not remain on the same syllable: when, for example, the word is augmented by the addition of a suffix, the tone moves further towards the end of the word; the original tone syllable, having lost the accent, becomes unstressed and its vowel shortens; e.g.
The Long Superlinear Stroke is not to be confused with the syllable marker; it often occurs in MSS at the end of a line over the last letter and represents a final n; e.g.

 VV is for VVowels
My dictionary says that a syllable is a unit of sound, generally larger than a phoneme, and that a syllable is composed of a vowel (or a syllabic consonant) plus optional preceding and following consonants.
In other words, all syllables are based on vowels, except those which are based on consonants; and a vowel is the sound that a syllable is based on, unless it's a consonant.
So, a syllable (the word is from Greek syllambanein, "to gather together") is a unit of sound that's constructed around a speech sound that's made with an unrestricted air flow.

 Kālacakra seed syllable or monogram
The anusvāra indicates that the last "ya" is nasalised, such as in the pronunciation of syllables such as "oṃ" and "hūṃ".
Notice that the crescent shaped visarga is associated here with the sun, and is therefore usually red in colour, and that the circular shaped bindu (anusvāra) is associated with the moon, and is therefore usually white.
In later verses describing the generation process meditation, these same syllables are also associated with the maṇḍala and other aspects of the meditation, and so the symbolism of the monogram covers all three aspects of outer, inner and other Kālacakra.
