#' wordcount
#' 
#' \code{wordcount()} counts words.  Currently a "word" is a clustering of
#' characters separated from another clustering of charactersby at least 1
#' space.  That is the law.
#' 
#' @param x 
#' A string or vector of strings, or an ngram object.
#' @param sep
#' The characters used to separate words.
#' @param count_fun
#' The function to use for aggregation if \code{x} has length greater than 1.
#' Useful ones include \code{sum} and \code{identity}.
#' 
#' @return 
#' A count.
