An expanded enhancement request has been filed here: It includes the following question:

Currently, the Word Count tool in Writer measures only the number of words and characters. Is there an easy way to add a "words-per-sentence count"?

In other words, I'm suggesting a new feature—let's call it Wopse—that would measure the average sentence length in a given text. Writers could use this tool to write more effectively by keeping their sentences shorter (e.g., at 20 words or less).

An online service providing words-per-sentence count is available at . The website provides other measurements as well and is based on the open-source Text Statistics project ( ).
