Hello, I want to ask if counting the list of conjunctions e.g. "and", "of", "because" etc. means counting the conjunctions as a word of its own? For example, when counting the number of "while"s, sentences containing "once-in-a-while" or "while's" shouldn't be counted right? Since my program counts the number of conjunctions as a word of its own, most of my conjunction count vary from the Hucklebery example given. Thanks in advance

Agreed. You count conjunction when they are acting as conjunctions, i.e. on their own. When found as part of compound words, e.g "one-and_only", they are just a component of a compound word (which scores 1 word and 1 compound word). Cheers MichaelW
