Syllabic Decomposition

The syllabic decomposition is a division of words into syllables, for example in Dadaistic Poetry or Poems from authors such as Ernst Jandl, Valerie Scherstjanoi, Franz Mon, Gerhard Rühm or Michael Lentz. The most important example goes back to Kurt Schwitters in the famous "Ursonate", who transformed the Lettristic poem "fmsbw" by the Dadaist Raoul Hausmann into a syllabic decomposition: "Fümms bö wö tää zäää Uu".
