A quick count of entries in my Old Albic dictionary yields only 243 entries, but there are at least twenty words jotted down elsewhere, including the ones I invented to translate the relay text. I am very aware of the fact that Old Albic still needs quite much work on the lexicon. I really should do more translation exercises! Greetings, Jörg.
