I would have loved to have done this quiz but:
- I had no idea where to start with a ‘syllable-counting’ algorithm
Yeah, that stumped me too. I felt like it was cheating a bit to use the
Lingua::EN package. But interestingly, they use a pronunciation
dictionary from CMU to do the counting, so we could just skip the Lingua
step and implement it directly.
- I had so much to do that when I thought about looking for some,
you’d already posted a solution.
