It's 200 words. I have an Orcish-English lexicon build from Swadesh's list; if I haven't posted them already, I will this evening. (So people can get an idea of the syllabic structure; it's uh... kinda like Klingon with tones and a few more consonants. Still five vowels though.)

Is there a URL? Also, LangMaker's site ( has a lexicon file called vocabuld.lex, which lists 1600 words, organized into 38 topical classes (class 1 is for prepositions, class 2 is for basic verbs, class 3 is for human and family nouns...) DaW,
