This text is counted as one word: Hi
This text is counted as two: "Hi

Note: I have an older version of Open Office 3.3.0, build 9567.

This is still reproducible in 3.4.1

Hi -> 1 word
"Hi" -> 2 words
"Hi". "Hi". -> 3 words

Obviously something is wrong.

And it's even reproducible in 4.1.1

Hi -> 1 word
"Hi" -> 2 words
"Hi". "Hi". -> 3 words
"Hi". \n"Hi". -> 4 words

From what I understand, any number of quotation marks on a single line equals one word. Adding a new line and new quotation marks increases the number of words. Considering this was two years ago and a version down from current, this should get fixed.

If anyone knows where this function is located, then it would be really useful. My team has a couple guesses, but we're not 100% sure. We're thinking about changing the dictionary for word count.
