Counting syllables

Define a function named count that takes a single parameter. The parameter is a string. The string will contain a single word divided into syllables by hyphens, such as these:

"ho-tel"
"cat"
"met-a-phor"
"ter-min-a-tor"

Your function should count the number of syllables and return it.

For example, the call count("ho-tel") should return 2.
