Hi All,

Mounce's syllabification rule #7 (p16): "Any consonant plus a M or N goes 
with the following vowel".

My question is this:  If two liquids follow one another (i.e. either the M 
or N, but naturally not the "agma" G, then is this covered by rule #6?

Rule #6 says: "Double consonants are divided".

So this means GENNAW would be GEN NAW?

And AMMOS would be AM MOS?

Thank you,

James Forsyth
