I've occasionally wondered and only now been motivated to ask, when one counts the entries, what do you count? I'm presuming only one form of the word (in the situation of conjugation, declensions, and the like) and myself I would exclude an whole group of entries in my data that are "famous names". Since the original reason I tinkered with a conlang was to give a consistent feel to the fictional names I was using, early on, 'famous names' made up most of the entries. Now, the other entries represent about 4/5th's of my data, and the names are the rest. :) Iain/Feaelin
