Yes, it's a bit tough to define. Sasxsek has about 3500 words in the
current dictionary from about 700 roots. My other auxlangs are still in
the early stages so not to many words. I've been working mostly on
Deini lately. I haven't really counted the entries in the dictionary
which is just a word document (unlike Sasxsek which has a database,
making it easy to "count") but I'd esitmate about 500 main entries. An
entry make contain several derivatives. I'm pretty close to having a
first edition of the Deini Sloverix to publish on the web.
