Silabeador TIP (for Spanish)

Silabeador TIP is an on-line application which performs the syllabification of any Spanish word. TIP Syllabler uses a separator of syllables based on orthographic criteria which is complemented with a morphological analysis tool and a database of lexical-semantics relationships in order to perform “intelligent” division by components, looking at first for the existence of the word and then for the presence of affixes that can influence the syllabification. The morphological tool recognizes more than 4 millions of words. The database of lexical-semantics keeps over eighty thousand relationships. The C++ source code of the separator of syllables is available for free download under GNU General Public License.

Silabeador TIP is aware of the general hyphenation rules available at the sources listed below:
