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.
