Are these counted as words?

Postby Vega » Tue Apr 13, 2010 2:25 pm

When writing an essays of 600 (or any amount of words) required, then are these counted as words: the, a, I/we/you/they, in/on/at etc. ?

Thank you in advance!

Yes, these are words and are included in the count.

Yes offcourse, because they are the words used to form the sentences and make it give a sensible meaning.
