Syllable Counter

Calculate the number of syllables in a word or sentence.


Syllable Counter is a simple and free online tool that can be used for counting the total number of syllables in a word or sentence. You may find this useful in checking syllables while writing poems, haiku, sonnet etc or use this as a tool to assist in learning or teaching English grammar and syllables.


How does it calculate syllables ?

Initially It was completely based on a simple algorithm to calculate the total number of syllables, however it was not very accurate. Now, I use the algorithm in combination with a syllable dictionary. It’s still not entirely accurate but the accuracy is gradually improving. If you notice any miscalculation of syllables, please let me know. You should enter the sentences line by line, to display syllable count for each line as well.

Update! Now you can see the syllables divided for each word in every line on the result page. If you see any calculation errors please let me know.
