Did you try to contact 'www.howmanysyllables.com' before? To see if they would give you the informations. So you don't have to scrape their website.

No, didn't think to do that. Part of the reason I went to all this trouble, though, was to go through the process of building something myself, that I could run myself--and that, by extension, anyone else could do, too.
