What I meant was that the entire string "Hello" gets a better score than "HelloHowAreYou" because there are fewer words. But either of those get a better score than "oijwfHellowoifef", for example.

There needs to be some tradeoff, which I'm not quite sure how to judge at the moment. For example "ThisIsAStringThatGoesOnAndOnAndOnForever" and "perlxmonks" would probably have a nearly equivalent score because the first one doesn't have any junk characters, but has a high word count while the second one has only a few junk characters, but a low word count
