Counting Tool / June 2, 2018 / Jaelynn Adler
Word Counter is a tool that provides detailed statistics about the character count, number of words, characters without spaces and so on. Additionally, the tool also gives extensive statistics of syllables, sentences, unique words, paragraphs, average word length, average sentence length, estimated reading time, and estimated speaking time, etc.
Inclusive counting is usually encountered when dealing with time in the Romance languages. In exclusive counting languages such as English, when counting "8" days from Sunday, Monday will be day 1, Tuesday day 2, and the following Monday will be the eighth day. When counting "inclusively," the Sunday (the start day) will be day 1 and therefore the following Sunday will be the eighth day. For example, the French phrase for "fortnight" is quinzaine (15 [days]), and similar words are present in Greek (δεκαπενθήμερο, dekapenthímero), Spanish (quincena) and Portuguese (quinzena). In contrast, the English word "fortnight" itself derives from "a fourteen-night", as the archaic "sennight" does from "a seven-night"; the English words are not examples of inclusive counting.
