When it comes to word count, writing programs can count differently. There’s some that count certain punctuation, such as the em dash, and others that count hyphenated words as one.
Therefore, we recommend using Microsoft Word or WordCounter.
The same is true about syllable counters. For syllables, use Syllable Counter.

Time is running out! Have you submitted your 99 Word Story, 99 Word Freestyle Poetry, 99 Word BOTS or Memoir, or your Double Ennead to the first edition of Around the Campfire!
Hello Collen! I wanted to ask a question about the syllable counter and thought I’d ask here so others can see the answer. Should we use your syllable counter as gospel, even if we pronounce the words differently? “Coyotes,” for example, has two syllables in the counter, but I say it with three. (Fire is another tricky one, but I can accept that as two syllables per the counter). Thanks!

Good question! I’ve been checking the questionable words with the dictionary. The dictionary says two or three syllables in coyote. I’m going with (3). The syllable counters have been way off for some reason. If I question the count, I’ve been going by the dictionary.
