This is a problem without a quick answer.

The best algorithms for hyphenation use an extensive set of heuristic rules, like matching "-ing" suffixes for verbs, plus a medium sized database of exceptions. The typesetting software TeX respectively LaTeX is known to be especially effective at hyphenating words for a wide range of human languages.

You can find a very well written PhD thesis on the topic by Franklin Mark Liang at http://www.tug.org/docs/liang/liang-thesis.pdf. It is quite readable even for a layman.

I don't get what a stressed syllable is and need help with it


Word stress is the idea that in a word with more than one syllable, one (or more than one) syllable will be stressed or accented. And the rest will be unstressed, or, unaccented. Notice that I'm using the words 'stress' and 'accent' interchangeably. So, in English, not all syllables are created equal

How do I divide the word meat into syllables?


Given your list of words, It appears to me that what makes up a syllable is the vowels in the word.. each time 1 or more vowels are separated by 1 or more consonants/symbols, a syllable is born.
so, have an array of characters containing vowels.
now iterate through the given word and create a new syllable(String) by adding the characters you are inspecting until you find a vowel.. now continue to add the vowels you find until you find a consonant/symbol.. that's where your new syllable ends (you can add it to a List if you want or just output it to the command line) ..and if you haven't gone through the entire word yet, create a new syllable(String) and repeat the process.

Good luck

Show syllables in words


Perl is a great language for this type of problem.

I recommend using Perl, and installing the Lingua::Phonology::Syllable module. Here is a working example:

use Lingua::Phonology;
use Lingua::Phonology::Syllable;
my $phono = Lingua::Phonology->new();
$phono->features->loadfile;
$phono->symbols->loadfile;
# Create a new Syllable object
my $syll = new Lingua::Phonology::Syllable;
# Create an input word
my @word = $phono->symbols->segment('s','h','e','p','h','e','r','d');
# Allow onset clusters and simple codas
$syll->set_complex_onset;
$syll->set_coda;
# Syllabify the word
$syll->syllabify(@word);
my $count = $syll->count_syll;
print "Count: $count\n"; # prints "Count: 2"
# @word now has features set to indicate a syllabification of
# <shep><herd>

Divide the word Dangerous into syllabes


(sounds like a school assignment to me) ;-)

-count (& save) the 3 characters (1st syllable).
-start at position 4 (3+1 chars) in the string.
-count (& save) the 3 characters (2nd syllable).
-start at position 7 (6+1 chars) in the string.
-count (& save) the 3 characters (3rd syllable).

Logic:

-Initialize syllable-counter (x) to 1, position-counter to 1 (z).
-Initialize syl(x) strings to Null, where x = 1 to 3.
-Assign "dangerous" to string variable.

z = 1
y = 1
x = 1
string = "DANGEROUS"

For x = 1 to 3 DO
*Comment. read 3 chars (in a loop), add them to Syl (x).
For y = 1 to 3 DO
read a char(y) from the string at position-counter(z)
syl(x) = syl(x) + char(y)
z = z + 1
END DO
END DO


NOTE: not 100%, but close.

Syllabication of the word Nakinilerak


Here is an excerpt from a manual for transcribing Braille.
" When it is not possible to determine the correct syllabification of a proper name in a dictionary or other source, it is often possible to find the word divided in the print text. If the entire print book In the Shadow of a Rainbow were available, it would be obvious to the student that later in the text the name Babine is divided Ba-bine, Nakinilerak is
divided Na-kin-i-ler-ak, and Nahani is Na-ha-ni. "
