HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR WORD COUNT
WORD: Click the Review tab on the ribbon. Click the Word Count button in the Proofing group. You can also click the word count in the status bar to open the Word Count dialog box. Here you can see not only the word count, but also the character count (both with and without spaces), the paragraph count, and a line count.
GOOGLE DOCS: Click “Tools” in the header menu and select “Word Count” from the drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can use the Ctrl+Shift+C keyboard shortcut on Windows PC or Command+Shift+C on Mac.
