Displaying Sentence Word Counts

You can configure Word's grammar checker to show the average number of words per sentence in a document. That's useful because you don't want a document to have many long sentences. However, in a long document it's also important to have a variety of sentence lengths, but the grammar checker can't help you with this.

To configure the grammar checker to show the average number of words per sentence,choose ® Office,Word Options,click Proofing,and activate the Show Readability Statistics check box.

To see the lengths of the sentences in a document, use the code in Listing 7.9.
