About Our Free Online Syllable Counter
This syllable counter uses a combination of a
word U.S. English
and a formula-based syllable counting program. If a word is not found in our dictionary
, the formula-based counter is used. The formula-based counter may not be entirely accurate due to the numerous syllabic anomalies found within the U.S. English language
. As a result, we list the formula-based counter words and their syllable count so you can make any necessary corrections. Compare this syllable counter to other formula-based counters and you will find that it is one of the most accurate...if not THE most accurate syllable counter on the Web!
