Size of your dictionary

Hello all-

How many words does your conlang(s) have?  I realize that this might be a
tricky question to answer depending on how you define "word."

Angosey currently has about 770.  Maybe a quarter of these are "dead" words
that I don't really use from day to day.  I've committed maybe half to
memory, although now that I'm keeping a diary, my memorization is lagging

Also, how do you keep your dictionary organized?  I wrote an excel macro
that allows me to enter words and also search by word, grammatical type, and
English keyword.  I can make it available if other people want to use it,
but it may be a while-it's not working correctly yet!
