How to you define a word? I'm thinking that there could be many strings of characters in a database that aren't actually words and wonder what your rule is for telling them apart from "real" words. If you have multiple "words" in a single column, do you want to use anything besides a single space to delimit them? Do you want to look at certain column for the words, or is every character-based column in the database subject to the count and what about system tables?
