We recently launched a website exactly for this purpose!
It's a syllable dictionary!


Amongst other things, you can look up any word and find out how many syllables it has.

Interesting ... Which version of English are you using as your base, though? Hour (1 syllable according to your site) and shower (2 syllables ditto) rhyme in many versions of English - that spoken in Northern Ireland, for instance. And Wikipedia says that 'squirrel(l)ed' is one syllable in American English and two in British English. See here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_the_longest_English_words_with_one_syllable
