Multisyllable Practice List 6

This list includes all the syllable types & a fair number of exceptions. (It's a "medium" list.) If you miss an irregular word, make a list of words like that and learn them -- sometimes there's a simple reason for that exception, such as "Chevrolet" being of French origin, where et in that position is supposed to sound like long a. Other patterns include putting a suffix that begins with a consonant after a silent-e word, such as securely or hopeless, which need to be broken down that way instead of letting the silent e be part of another syllable.

The vocabulary of this list is fairly concrete & common; the decoding skills are actually fairly demanding.
