Technically there are more than 6 vowels and 1 cross-dresser. However, there are two titles for the big project. One of them drops a word from a title that already exists, and excludes one of the words that appears only once in this sentence, simply because it is meaningless without context.

With that in mind, you know that there are 6 vowels and 1 cross-dresser in the four word name for this project, or 7 if you count the vowel in the word that is excluded, but appears twice in this sentence.

The longer title contains one date and one acronym that make up the five-word full title, assuming, of course, you exclude the word that appears three times in this sentence.

Nibble on that for a while.

Second paragraph - there are three words that appear twice in that sentence.

Last little bit - no word appears three times in that sentence, Shaun... *blinks*

Dammit... I've been dished a red herring... -.-'''

No, there are three instances in the last bit in which I stated that the word in question appears three times. It appears twice in the sentence prior to this one, and once in this sentence.

Well, no, the word I was indicating in cryptic fashion wasn't necessarily a clue. I was trying to point out that the word in question is sort of a given, in that it would appear in the title anyway and wouldn't be counted as part of the vowel count.
