Our poem syllable counter counts the syllables for each line in a poem entered with hard returns. It is the BEST counter of syllables in the world. It uses a combination of a U.S. English syllable count dictionary and a formula-based algorithm. The syllabic algorithm may not be entirely accurate due to the numerous 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.
