Freedom And Beyond | Quote 02495
The smallest unit of speech that we can say in isolation, all by itself, is the syllable. With a very few exceptions, we do not speak isolated letters or letter groups or graphemes, and it is therefore foolish, useless, wasteful, confusing, and harmful to try to “teach” children how to “read” them. What cannot be spoken cannot be read. We speak syllables, so we must read syllables.
