NAME

Lingua::NO::Syllable - Count the number of syllables in Norwegian words.

VERSION

Version 0.06.

SYNOPSIS

    use Lingua::NO::Syllable;

    my $count = syllables( 'Tyrannosaurus' ); # 5, because:
                                              # Tyr-ann-o-sau-rus

DESCRIPTION

Lingua::NO::Syllable::syllables($word) estimates the number of syllables in the $word passed to it. It's an estimate, because the algorithm is quick and dirty, non-alpha characters aren't considered etc. Don't expect this module to give you a 100% correct answer.

As the Norwegian and the Danish languages are quite similar, at least written, this module might work for the Danish language as well.

ACCENTED CHARACTERS

Accented characters, like é, à etc., are normalized (using Unicode::Normalize) before the number of syllables are counted.
