Phonetic knowledge is the understanding of sound-symbol relationships and spelling patterns.
The interchangeability of syllables in Spanish allows for the creation of new words. Students should be able to understand that syllables are the building blocks of words. When students change, add, or delete syllables in a word, new words are formed. For example, muchacho (boy) becomes muchacha (girl) by changing the last syllable of the original word; gato (cat) becomes gatito (kitten) when adding the syllable ti to the original word; carroza (carriage) turns into carro (car) by deleting the syllable za from the original word.
