  5. Word counter


Word counter

My word counter nearly halved overnight.

Did they change the way they count how many words you have 'learned'? Or maybe I'm just forgetting stuff at an alarming rate and shouldn't have drank all that paint stripper after dinner last night.

We're now counting "words" instead of "word forms". For example, "read" and "reads" are now counted as the same word.


it is much better, I wasn't quite sure of even the half of the count I used to have there. Now I am sure, that at least half of those words I have already seen somewhere :)
