Hi mille40@wwu.eduand welcome to the Community!  The ability to see a word count has been discussed some time.  There is an idea open for this functionality here, https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/3454-word-count-for-speedgrader-docviewer-grading" modifiedtit....  It would be great to vote this up as the more support for this feature the better!  Until then, rmurchshafer@unomaha.edu had a good suggestion for discussions in this thread, Word Count??? 

"If you are wanting word counts on Discussion posts, click the Edit button next to a student post to see a word count below the Rich Content Editor. After seeing the number click Cancel so that no edits actually take place."

I hope this helps and best wishes!
