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. -- Jim Henry
