Due: Friday, September 30, 11:00 AM

Write a program called syllables.py that reads a word and prints the number of syllables in the word. For this program, assume the following rules are the only ones you need to determine the number of syllables (there are some special case words that do not follow these rules and we will NOT test for those):

  • Each vowel (a,e,i,o,u,y) counts as 1 syllable except as noted below
  • A sequence of adjacent vowels count as 1 syllable
  • An 'e' at the end of a word does not count
  • If the program determines there are no syllables, then set the count to 1 syllable

Here are some examples:

Please give me a word: harry
The word harry has 2 syllables.

Another example:

Please give me a word: hairy
The word hairy has 2 syllables.

Another example:

Please give me a word: hare
The word hare has 1 syllables.

And one more example:

Please give me a word: the
The word the has 1 syllables.

Submission: Please submit one .py file named syllables.py to the POTD submission system at https://archimedes.cs.virginia.edu/cs1110/.
