US Largest Cities By Syllables

Directions

Name the 50 largest US cities of minimum 5K population by how many syllables are in their name (usually official name unless much more common used). I tried to count syllables as if a native English speaker were pronouncing the names i.e. diphthongs are typically counted as multiple syllables. Judgment calls had to be made on certain names.

  1. Slightly perturbed. I understand the need to push monetization for you. But cutting the time limits in half for non-paying members severely reduces the pleasure of doing some of these quizzes, an example being this one. I felt I was doing well, i.e. not wasting time thinking on cities I was stumped on…, but each time bonus was minimal. Perhaps instead of a 50% penalty for non-paying, you give a 100% bonus to paying? Or cut the penalty to 75% or some such.

    I don’t mean to criticize in a negative way. I really enjoy this site, but with the new changes, I am being pushed to either pay for membership, or stop visiting. And I have a very frugal spouse 🙁
