We've completely overhauled our entire syllable counting tool, and it is now super accurate - a far more reliable count! If you're needing to know the syllable count for one word, or a passage of text, you've got it.
Help make words and syllables fun for your kids (and everyone else) with Syl-la-bles the word game, off Amazon. There's nothing like a bit of friendly competition to get the kids interested!
Yes our syllable counter is primarily built around the English language.
Syllables and the wider science of speech sounds is a very complex area, and brings plenty of challenges. After all, whether a word is a monosyllable, disyllable, trisyllable or a polysyllable, the evolution in the early written languages from pictograms to syllables has actually been referred to as the most important advance in the history of writing. source
Please let us know if you encounter any issue using our free tool - or if you have any suggestions on how we can make this better for you. We want to be the absolute best for you all!
Happy wordsmithing - Matt
