Count the number of words.

What method do  publishers use to count the number words in a novel?

Forget computer software.

Do not get the question. Home Office tools count the number of words. Or do you write with your hand, traditionally?

There are many ways to count the number of words. While I can't really say how publishers count the words in a novel, the writing tools that I use to write generally has a word counter on top.
