Save your money and just search syllable division on the web. However, it does offer a nice word list of
syllables. Read description carefully it might be a nice read - it is short.

Big Help for ESL Students

As an English teacher, I've often been asked why syllable stress is so random in English. When you think of PHOtograph, phoTOgrapher and photoGRAPHic, I can see why ESL students are confused. It turns out that there are a couple of simple rules, so with syllable stress out of the way, students can then focus on the other aspects of English.
