Somewhere around 1500 entries (including compounds and proper names). I
wonder if there's any pattern to the kinds of words that tend to get
overlooked (verbs for instance)? I guess the only way to really get them
all is to systematically go through the dictionary, or do lots of
translations. As a side comment, one of the reasons I started the Tiki
project (or the vocabulary project that Tiki grew out of, at least) was
to come up with a list of basic words as a guide for starting new
languages, but "lift" was missing from that list also!
