Haiku Syllable Counter

This free haiku syllable counter counts the syllables for each line in a Haiku (or other form of poem) entered with hard returns. It uses a combination of a U.S. English haiku syllable counter dictionary and a formula-based haiku syllable counting program. The formula-based haiku 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. See Haiku, How to Write a Haiku, Haiku Poets, Examples of Haiku Poetry, Haiku Definition, Read Haiku Poems, and our more robust non-haiku Syllable Counter.
