Suggestion for a new filter: Word count.

Current situation:
It's possible to sort by "fewest word count". However, that might give you the first 30 pages with sentences like "really?", "hurry!" or "silence!".

Suggestion:
Add a new filter, where the word count can be set.

Reason / Good points:
- Beginners could search short to mid-long sentences specifically through word count.

This doesn't solve that problem, but a while ago someone else suggested being able to search for moderately-long sentences, so I created this list of almost 50,000 sentences.

9-10-11-12-13-word English Sentences with Audio

It can be browsed, or used for limiting searches.

You do a lot of list assembling! Awesome work!

I will see, what I can take out of this answer. Thank you.
