gzb has (as of the last website update; I'm away from my
machine, and there are a handful of words added since December
that aren't on the website yet) 1263 root words, 1773 derived
words, and 33 gzb'ized proper names and acronyms.

gzb uses a tab-delimited text file, which I edit with Emacs and
process in various ways (including producing the html lexicon)
with Perl and Awk scripts.
