Having just written about the internal structure of syllables, I found it interesting that the January 19th Newsweek had an article about the 1970's television show "The Electric Company" that mentioned blended syllables. I am of the original "Electric Company" generation and I certainly remember watching the show and blending syllables.
Tiger – “Let’s clap tiger” (Say and clap “ti-ger”) “How many parts?”(two)
According to the article, the new version of "The Electric Company" is about four superhero kids that can throw letters and words. Sounds fun; I love throwing letters and words around. I can't wait to check out the new "Electric Company."
