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 (http://www.langmaker.com) 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...)
