Newer technology cannot count any better than older technology. What is
important (in addition to the text used) is the definition of "different
words." For my count I used the concept of word-type (29,066). Using the
concept of the lemma would of course reduce the total considerably,
especially also if names were then omitted.

Dear SHAKSPER subscribers,

Oops!  I erred in a recent post when I said that a parody of the balcony
scene with Mike Meyers and Jenny McCarthy is in Austin Powers,
International Man of Mystery.  I saw it while channel surfing on the MTV
video awards and concluded it was a clip from the movie.  I have since
discovered that it was a short clip (with Meyers in his Powers
character) made specifically for the awards.  Claire Danes was the
presenter after the clip aired.  There's a transcript on a Romeo and
Juliet website if anyone wants to read it.

Best,
Richard
