How to use syllable in a sentence?

  1. Annie Dillard, _Pilgrim at Tinker Creek_:

    There is a certain age at which a child looks at you in all earnestness and delivers a long, pleased speech in all the true inflections of spoken English, but with not one recognizable syllable. There is no way you can tell the child that if language had been a melody, he had mastered it and done well, but that since it was in fact a sense, he had botched it utterly.

  2. Don Henley:

    I try to write conversationally; I try to write like people speak and put the emphasis on the right syllable.

  3. Dejan Stojanovic:

    Cosmos is God, who whispered the syllable of life.

  4. Louis Aragon:

    The whole fauna of human fantasies, their marine vegetation, drifts and luxuriates in the dimly lit zones of human activity, as though plaiting thick tresses of darkness. Here, too, appear the lighthouses of the mind, with their outward resemblance to less pure symbols. The gateway to mystery swings open at the touch of human weakness and we have entered the realms of darkness. One false step, one slurred syllable together reveal a man's thoughts.

  5. David Kendall:

    This is not a case about the dissemination to the public of classified information, no classified information appeared in the biography. Not a single syllable.
