word count

The number of words in a text (or part of a text).

In the context of e-publishing, word count is more important than page count.

Because most e-books use a reflowable layout, and because e-reading environments have a wide variation in screen size, the total page count of an e-book is meaningless.

Service providers often use the word count of a manuscript to adjust the pricing of their services.
