Does anyone know if there are any words that have the same number of syllables as they have letters? Obviously 1 letter words fit this criterion, but are there any 2- or 3-letter words (ie, two-syllable two-letter words, or three-syllable three-letter words). I doubt very much that there will be any for 4 letter words.

The only thing that I can think of is Io, one of Jupiter's moons (pronounced eye-oh).

I'm not sure if it counts, but I've heard children refer to vowels as the "AEIOU's"

Having just listened to it on the radio, if you take Katy Perry's song "I kissed a girl", then the word "it" has two syllables:

"I kissed a girl and I liked i-it".

Gotta love pop-stars

Demian was bold enough to comment:

Is that really a word and if so how do they pronounce it? Surely they say it as individual letters so A.E.I.O.U's.

I couldn't think of any but to open up the discussion a bit I consulted Schott's and did find some words with the vowls in alphabetical order: Absentemious, Absentious, Arsenious, Caesious, Factious & Fracedinous.

First time I heard that song I thought it was 'I kissed a girl and i like tits'. Which still kinda makes sense.
