Hi Michael, In the project instructions, under the heading "profile creation" The corresponding profile to the first sample (excerpt from Mark Twain) has 0 listed for all things in the profile. I suspect this is a mistake, since even the word count in the profile is listed as zero. Second, the profile for the second sample from Kangaroo has "compound_word" listed as 0, even though in the text, there are words such as "one-and-only" and "take-it-for-granted", which I would argue are compound words. In the project instructions, you defined "word-pair" as a word-pair, but never explicity defined what a compound word was. I assume that you meant word-pairs and compound words are the same thing. In the instructions you defined "word-pairs" as "two OR MORE simple words separated by hyphens with no spaces around them". Therefore I would argue that "one-and-only" and "take-it-for-granted" are in fact valid "word-pairs", and if word-pair means conjunction, then the count for conjunctions in the sample is incorrect, as it cannot be zero (i.e. it should be 2). As an addon to that, by the definition of "word-pair" and thus conjunction (assuming these are the same thing), I take it "one-and-only" only counts as ONE compound word, despite there being multiple "-" present. Sorry for bundling so many related questions into one post. Warm regards, Justin
