Things I Thought Would Be More Important: Syllables

This is the essence of Crossover Report Deep Thoughts. I can almost promise you’ll see this type of article every week with a different subject. It’ll make you think.

What’s the word with syllables? See what I did there?

But honestly, remember how important syllables were in grade school? We use to break down words by moving our hand down the opposite arm. So for racecar, you’d start at your shoulder, move down to your elbow for “race” and end at your fingers with “car”.

At the time, I was pressed once we got past 3 syllables. If I couldn’t figure out the syllables, how would I ever get a job? Do they let you drive? Do I still get snack time?

TURNS OUT IT MEANS NOTHING

Where have syllables ever gotten you? It’s the least fun fun fact that you can give. “Did you know that crossover has 3 syllables?” All that syllable silliness is just WASTING valuable brain space.
