I'm almost ready to put up my story as a .txt but I have a question. Do misspelled words or words that do not exist count as words? I have a few words that obviously are not going to be in any dictionary considering they are indeed made up for a fantasy story. I want to know if they count as words. Also one of my characters is atrocious when it comes to the english language so purposely he says things as his own contraptions o his own version of the words. He speaks a lot and I'm afraid my word count will go down if what he says won't b counted as words.
