In phonology, syllabicity (also syllabicity ) is the property of a sound to be able to form a syllable nucleus in a given language . These sounds are then also called syllabic and all other sounds as nonsyllabic . To be syllabic is therefore a property of the sound that it always has. A sound that forms a syllable core in a certain context is called a sonant . The context in which a sound can form a syllable nucleus depends largely on its sonority class.

Syllabic sounds are always the vowels and also in German, for example, the sounds [n] and [l].

In the International Phonetic Alphabet , the attribute is marked syllabic with ◌̩ ( Unicode COMBINING VERTICAL LINE BELOW U + 0329) and the attribute non- syllabic with ◌̯ (Unicode COMBINING INVERTED BREVE BELOW U + 032F).
