A 'wordy' post -- but a short one?

I saw this post by Linda, of Are We There Yet?, and I followed one of the links to a blog called Pretty Good on Paper by Cavebloggem.

Linda had submitted her blog to Cavebloggem's analysis of the words she's used in her blog; Cavebloggem is conducting something of a study to find out how many words are actually in use in the Blogosphere. (Other than George Carlin's seven words you can't say on television, I assume. I don't need to do research to find that these are in frequent use in the Blogosphere.)

Linda was the 18th in a series of blogs at which Cavebloggem has looked, and even though he's looked at so many, he found that Linda contributed 630 unique words to his growing database. I was so intrigued, I volunteered to submit this blog to the process... and I'm hoping to have his analysis to share with you some time in the next couple of weeks.

I'll have to have my son translate all this analysis stuff for me. It's very complex.

I am very intrigued to see how many and what words he comes up with from what I perceive to be a very articulate and well-written blog!
