Counting the Number of keywords in a dictionary in python

I have a list of words in a dictionary with the value = the repetition of the keyword but I only want a list of distinct words so i wanted to count the number of keywords. Is there a to count the number of keywords or is there another way I should look for distinct words?

YOU YOU
Answer
len(yourdict.keys())

or just

len(yourdict)

If you like to count unique words in the file, you could just use set and do like

len(set(open(yourdictfile).read().split()))
