This is a list of approximately 800 polysyllabic nonsense words. Polysyllabic nonsense words are made-up words that have no meaning but are vital when teaching students who are beyond the single syllable word stage. Nonsense words assure educators that the words teachers are using to reinforce a specific phonetic skill are not words students have memorized. By the time a child is in 3rd grade they have memorized hundreds or even thousand of words and no purpose is served by having them call out or spell words they have long ago memorized. The best way to teach and practice the sounds and syllables in our language is presenting them in words they have never seen. These polysyllabic nonsense words are coupled with a pronunciation key available for use by parents and teachers.
