|[英文摘要]The syllable has long been regarded as a one-order phonetic unit without being known as an illusion; vowels and consonants have been the most solid units of phonetics without being known as impostors of letters; and the historical misconception that vowels and consonants make up syllables has gone unrecognized. The article analyzes the reasons why syllables have no linguistic status, describes the confusion over the unknown origin of vowels and consonants, analyzes the relationship between syllables and letters from a chronological perspective,|
and experimentally explores the unitary form of speech production, and reveals that the temporal structure of articulation prescribes the nature of syllables from a co-temporal perspective. Based on this, the paper redefines syllables in a subversive way, and reshapes the true status and value of vowels and consonants. The article concludes by suggesting that syllables evolved in a long history and eventually produced complex word syllable structures and limited pure syllable forms through shedding, whereby a set of minimal syllable analysis schemes and syncopation principles can be proposed.
