What is the average word length in English?

The most widespread estimate is that the average length of a word in English is about 5 letters. However, that may not always be true. The mean length of a word may depend on what dictionary is chosen for such analysis. In other words, a smaller dictionary is less likely to contain a word like floccinaucinihilipilification, that is used quite rarely. If we include such words into analysis, the mean length will increase up to 9 or 10 letters.

Why does the actual result differ from the number of pages shown by your website?

Our tool is designed to show the estimated number of pages for a typical text written with most commonly used words. As it was described above, your text may contain longer words, for example medical or chemical terminology. All in all, it will still show you the result that will only slightly differ from the actual one.

What font and line spacing should I choose for APA and MLA styles?

A paper formatted in both MLA and APA styles should be double-spaced with 1” margins on all sides. Recommended fonts are 12pt Times New Roman, Arial, or any other legible typeface.
