What still trips me up when it comes to syllabification is the situation in which the ε augment is placed in a compound verb such as απολυω.
As I understand it the syllables for this verb should be:
απολυω : α - πο - λυ - ω
απολυσω : α - πο - λυ - σω
απελυσα : απ - ε - λυ - σα
I keep finding myself wanting to pronounce the aorist as α - πε - λυ - σα.
