Here is a nifty little feature in KDE that I discovered recently: it's possible to view the word count of a text file without actually opening it. To do this, right-click on a text file (or press Alt+Enter) in the Dolphin file manager, choose Properties and switch to the Information section. You should see the actual word count in the Words field.

If, for some reason, the field is not displayed, you can add it manually by clicking on the Configure link in the lower-right corner of the dialog box and then ticking the Words check box.
