Dan, if you are entering the words in a form, when the variable holding the string 
hits your script do something like this.... (Hey I just figured this out myself too!!!!

Gotta love these lists!!!!!!!!

$tmpStr= whatever the form passes your script
// turn string into an array
// use EXPLODE() to seperate the words into an array
// since they are seperated by a " " (blank space)
$tmpAry = explode(' ',$tmpStr);
// if they were seperated by commas you would write
$tmpAry = explode(',',$tmpStr); // DIG????
// then just use count($tmpAry) to figure out the size of your array
// and you have the number of words!

There might be an easier way than that, but it workes for me.
-Peace dude!!!!!!!!
PS: Thank Andrew Braund for the solution, he sent a varriant of it to me!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's two people you helpes Andrew!
YOU RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
