syllables detect algorithm

can anybody help me with an shell script algorithm for detecting the number of syllabes from a word?

You should first define what a syllabe is and you should as well clarify all rules they have to follow and find a deterministic approach so that it can then be implemented (this may also depend on which language it is for (may require some specific linguistic knowledge).

For sure it will be a kind of tedious work, make sure that the benefit you will get from such a work is in balance with the time you are going to spend on it.

My first attempt at this problem would bypass fancy linguistic analysis and instead scrape an online dictionary site for a word's phonetic notation. Smilie

Don't know in english , but in french, phonetic notation doesn't necessary correspond to syllabe...
Or maybe you are you are talking about building a dictionnary of syllabe then scrapped into phonetic notation ? that can be used for matching analysis ?

But still ... a darn tedious work for a "limited" benefit in my opinion. Smilie
