jQuery to count words in each paragraph

Find jQuery code to count number of words in each paragraph or HTML <p> tag element. Below jQuery code does following things.
  • Iterates through each paragraph element.
  • Split the paragraph text using space. Split() returns array so take the length of array which represents number of words.
  • Then appends the count to paragraph itself.
$(document).ready(function() {
    $('p').each(function(i) {
        var iTotalWords = $(this).text().split(' ').length;
        $(this).append(" " + iTotalWords + " words ");
    });
});
See result below
