Every now and then I see posts pop up regarding word count. Usually they are about discrepancies in word count between different tools. Partially inspired by this great blog post by Paul Filkin, I created a word count analysis tool that allows you to easily see what word count gray areas might be causing the differences you see between tools. The tool is highly configurable so you can set it up to deal with any gray areas exactly how you like and get your "ideal word count".

A browser-based demo of the tool can be found here: https://www.tm-town.com/word-count-analyzer

It is also open source, so feel free to check it out and adapt it to your needs: https://github.com/diasks2/word_count_analyzer

I wrote a short blog post to go along with the tool as well: https://www.tm-town.com/blog/deconstructing-word-count

Hope it might be useful to some of you.
