How to count words across multiple documents?

I have a long text divided into multiple separate documents. I need to know the total wordcount across all these documents. Is there a way to do it automatically?


put all your documents into a Master Document - see LibreOffice Help - Working with Master Documents and Subdocuments. The word count of the master document is the sum of the word count of the individual documents being part of the master document.

Hope that helps.
