Abstract:

Practically all of the research on syllable boundaries in Hebrew has so far focused on phonological awareness as a stage of language development in children, emphasizing the importance of this awareness in acquiring reading literacy. This paper is based on results of a research conducted with 125 native Hebrew university students. The two main goals of the study were: a) to track the perception of the notion syllable and its boundaries among Israeli high-educated native speakers, and b) to identify factors which may affect their syllabification judgment.
