The paper is а general survey of the difficulties existing in syllabication considered as a problem of automatization (for the purposes of printing). The difficulties arise from the following problems: 1. Establishing a norm; 2. The morphematic structure of word-forms; 3. Syllabication of morphemes; 4. Foreign words; 5. Stress of word forms (only in English); 6. Homographs. The following languages are considered: German, Bulgarian, English, Hungarian, Czech and Slovak. With respect to syllabication these languages differ greatly, the reasons for the differences being: the typological place of the languages considered, the extent of the derivational system (compounds in particular), the attitude towards foreign words and the specific conventions in the field of orthography and syllabication. Procedures for automatic syllabication have been worked out for the considered languages in the German Democratic Republic.
