r wordcounter of a column


I am new with r studio, I will appriciate every help;-).
I have tabel in r studio with different columns. I need to count the words of the column "reviews" and put this output in a new column. How should I do this?

Here's one method using the dplyr and stringr packages.

library(dplyr, warn.conflicts = FALSE)

data <- tibble(reviews = c("the dog is on the mat", 
                           "the cat is on top of the wall"))

data <- mutate(data, word_count = lengths(str_split(reviews, boundary("word"))))

#> # A tibble: 2 x 2
#>   reviews                       word_count
#>   <chr>                              <int>
#> 1 the dog is on the mat                  6
#> 2 the cat is on top of the wall          8
