There are several ways of accomplishing what you want. Perhaps the simplest to
understand is this one:

%%%%  SNIPPET BEGINS  %%%%
\version "2.19.83"

thenotes = { \once \phrasingSlurDashed c''4.\( 8\) }

onesyllable = \lyricmode { six \markup \null }
twosyllables = \lyricmode { sev -- en }

\score {
    \new Staff \new Voice \thenotes
    \addlyrics \onesyllable
    \addlyrics \twosyllables
%%%%  SNIPPET ENDS  %%%%

Hope that helps!
