so far i was able to do for countting the letters in a phrase ..,but i am not able to count the words in a phrase and displaying according to the number of the word...here's my code to count the letters.. what changes should i make to count the words in a phrase...here's my code...the output should be like shown at the bottom,.the specific phrase is: whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer

#include <stdio.h>
int main()
{
   int phrase;      
   int aCount = 0; 
   int bCount = 0; 
   int eCount = 0; 
   int hCount = 0;
   int iCount = 0; 
   int nCount = 0; 
   int oCount = 0;
   int qCount = 0;
   int rCount = 0;  
   int sCount = 0;
   int tCount = 0;
   int uCount = 0; 


   printf(  "Enter the phrase.\n"  );
   printf(  "Enter the EOF character to end input.\n"  );

   
   while ( ( phrase = getchar() ) != EOF ) {
      
      
      switch ( phrase ) { 

         case 'A': 
         case 'a': 
            ++aCount; 
            break; 

         case 'B': 
         case 'b': 
            ++bCount; 
            break; 

         case 'E': 
         case 'e': 
            ++eCount; 
            break; 

		case 'H': 
        case 'h': 
            ++hCount; 
            break; 

         case 'I': 
         case 'i': 
            ++iCount; 
            break; 
         case 'N': 
         case 'n': 
            ++nCount; 
            break; 

		 case 'O': 
         case 'o': 
            ++oCount; 
            break; 

		 case 'Q': 
         case 'q': 
            ++qCount; 
            break; 

		 case 'R': 
         case 'r': 
            ++rCount; 
            break; 

        case 'S': 
        case 's': 
            ++sCount; 
            break; 

         case 'T': 
         case 't': 
            ++tCount; 
            break; 

		 case 'U': 
         case 'u': 
            ++uCount; 
            break; 


         case '\n':
         case '\t': 
         case ' ': 
		 case ',':
		 case ':':
            break; 

         default: 
            printf( "Incorrect phrase entered." ); 
            printf( " Enter a new phrase.\n" ); 
            break; 
      } 
   
   } 

   
   printf( "\nTotals for phrase are:\n" );
   printf( "A: %d\n", aCount ); 
   printf( "B: %d\n", bCount ); 
   printf( "E: %d\n", eCount ); 
   printf( "H: %d\n", hCount );
   printf( "I: %d\n", iCount ); 
   printf( "N: %d\n", nCount ); 
   printf( "O: %d\n", oCount );
   printf( "Q: %d\n", qCount );
   printf( "R: %d\n", rCount );
   printf( "S: %d\n", sCount );
   printf( "T: %d\n", tCount );
   printf( "U: %d\n", uCount );
   return 0; /* indicate program ended successfully */

}

/* end function main */
(note: this programs is for specific phrase.)


the output for my program should be like:
if the phrase is : whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer
0 0
1 0
