Kelen has 1741 stems, which are uninflected forms and not real words, and 2143 inflected words. Some of those need editing and maybe deleting. Others need to be added. So ~2000 is a good answer.

I keep the official version in a MySQL database. I keep an unofficial version in a spreadsheet. New words tend to go on the spreadsheet before being added to the official dictionary. -S -- Sylvia Sotomayor "Remember, high-tech means breaks down next week, while cutting edge means breaks down this afternoon." - Bruce Sterling
