Hi, The earlier thread was getting a bit long, and I worried that this posting may be lost. I now am convinced that the 93 words in the update from the other day is correct. I added some debugging to a a version. The debugging prints out the word as well as the Word token. I then sorted the file to make counting easier (so not in text order). I've attached the file. In summary, my original 91 was incorrect. (Thanks to Justin for pointing out the problem.) However, 95 is also incorrect. Agreed? Cheers

Michael, I'm still getting 95. Here is a manual count. Am I counting any words here that shouldn't be counted? (Proper nouns, words that begin with apostrophes? etc.)

Michael, I am also still getting word count as 95. Also, I don't think the file you intended to attach made it here. The file attached in the previous reply (Thanks a ton to he/she who did it) nicely captures what we are considering as words. Can you please reattach your file and also look into the one uploaded in previous reply? Thanks.

This is how I counted out the words as well. If 95 is not the correct count, can you please clarify why?

Hi, Well done! Sorry that I cannot thank you by name, but, Yes, you are right. My program was not counting the two instances of 'Roo. It now does. I'll shortly upload a new set of example output files. Cheers MichaelW

Hi Georgia, My apologies, but 95 is indeed correct. I posted an update here a short while ago, after I realised that my program did not count the two instances of 'Roo <sigh> Cheers MichaelW
