I should add that in multi-syllable words, the only consonant phonemes
allowed to finish a syllable before another consonant are the nasals /m/
and /n/, and /l/.

That is to say, CVCVC, CVmCvC, CVnCVC (commonest) and CVlCVC are all
permissible word structures, but not CVrCVC or CVsCVC, for instance.
