    There's a term called "Syllable Juncture" in phonetics associating with "connected speech".

    It is the manner of transition or mode of relationship between two consecutive sounds in speech.

    Another name for Syllable Juncture is Syllable Boundaries.

    In single syllable words, we only need to equate the whole word with the syllable. Such as "zip" and "pill". These words constitue both the word and the syllable in each case.

    In words with more than one syllable, however, we may be less confident in locating syllable boundaries or syllable juncture. For instance, in the word "greenery", does the /n/ belong at the end of [gri] or at the beginnng of [eri]

    So is it "green-ery" or "gree-nery" ;)

    p.s. the things inside [ ] are meant to be IPA symbols.

    It means at a particular or stage in a series of events.

    此時或是在這一個關頭

    就重要的關頭或什麼的~~

    Ex: It is very difficult at this juncture to predict the company's future.

    此時很難預料公司的前景.
