Hello, I would want to make a point that based on my testing and research, compound words just means any words that are joined with one or more hyphens. But in the samples given, it seems that multiple-hyphenated words are not counted as compound words. Secondly, I would also want a clarification for the count for "words". i.e. do double-hyphenated words like "Oh--I" count as 2 words or should be disregarded? and what about words with weird combinations of characters such as "pain'-killin"? Cheers

Hi, That is correct. Please see the text in the spec about double hyphen being different from hyphen. Cheers MichaelW
