New and improved! Now 166.67% more diabolical than 666! [}:D]

Kankonian's lexicon has reached 66,666 words!

Today I finished working on the fiction-within-fiction creatures from the Kankonian science fiction movie "The World Aside". While adding those words, I passed the 66,666-word mark with amopovth, the Kankonian spelling of "amopodh". The amopodh is a short bush covered with psychotropic club-like protrusions containing a drug called takitaki, which allow the thofeni (the alien sapients in the film) to get high. The Kankonians use VTH, and the Romanization DH, for the edh sound in the Pithasayi language, which is a phoneme not found in Kankonian (so there's no letter for it in the Kankonian alphabet). Its irregular plural amopovthi (LIE: amopodhi) follows the pluralization rules of Pithasayi.

I am now officially two-thirds of the way to sextuple digits (100,000 words). Wish me well!

Congratulations!

How long did it get you to get from 33,333 to 66,666? And would you estimate that it will take you a similar amount of time to reach 100,000?

Word #33,333 was reached on November 18, 2012. So 7 years, 11 months, and 9 days.

If I reach #100,000 at the same pace, the date will be October 6, 2028. (Hey, that means I'll finish in the year in which Inner Bruise is set!)

But I should receive the word lists and corpus data I need long before that date. That will make for an explosion of word-creation and lexical gap-filling.

Plus, once the Landau Core Vocabulary is finished, I'll be able to add to the lexica of many of my other conlangs and call them complete. I'll then be able to work on astronomy and calendars, biology and ethnobiology, politics and history (including legal documents!), and stories to write for all the concultures that will contribute culture-specific loanwords to Kankonian, and get around to adding all those animal and plant words from other planets into my Kankonian dictionary, and my lexicon will balloon in size.

(FUN FACT: I'm actually keeping a centralized list of the taxa and species of various planets and bioswaths, and each modernized, spacefaring, interplanetarized conlang (the conlangs like Kankonian, Shaleyan, Tentan, Quispe, Achel, Javarti, Bodusian, etc.) will receive words for all of these species and higher taxa. I'm considering doing the same thing with foods, sports/games, music genres, and maybe even religions. Here's the list as I've worked on it so far (I'm limiting myself to 200 human bioswath species):

Yeah, that was the first thing I thought. But when I reach 67,500 words, I'll be out of the woods (does that mean the Devil was chopping down trees to chase me?)
I mean, how many conlangs have that many words? Yours may be the first in all of conlanging history!?
Actually, Kankonian is still surpassed by four other conlangs:

https://www.frathwiki.com/Conlangs_with ... ,000_words

66,666 Kankonian - James Landau; spoken on the planet Kankonia in the Lehola Galaxy
some 75,000 Neo - Arturo Alfandari; Euroclone
77,000 Esperanto - Ludwig Lazarus Zamenhof; auxlang and the world's most successful conlang
over 83,000 xuxuxi - John Cowan; based on the same principles as Classical Yiklamu
91,591 Classical Yiklamu - Mark P. Line; engelang with computer-generated vocabulary based on WordNet and no derivation

As mentioned above, xuxuxi and Classical Yiklamu are computer-generated matchups of computer-generated words to WordNet entries, so those conlangers didn't actually create words, and you could argue that they don't count.

As to which conlanger created the most words across ALL his/her conlangs? Not Zamenhof, for thousands of Esperanto words were created after his time. Arturo Alfandari apparently came up with all the Neo words himself, though. It'll take some time before I surpass Alfandari in the number of words I've created.

The prize for word-creating likely goes to Arne Arotnow. Arotnow created 46,950 words for EDA/Edanic, a Euroclone based on Italian, and another 51,831 in Vedanic, a reform of Edanic. That makes a staggering 98,781 words!

I guess there are no mentions in this thread of Ciladian reaching 2,000 words. Oh, well, I counted now and it has 2,057 entries in the Ciladian-English dictionary!

I have no idea what word #2,000 was, but the most recently added word is tyumbyun, meaning "hospitality". It comes from tyum, meaning host/hostess, and -byun, a suffix that means "the state of being a/an . . ." (father -> paternity, etc.)

I hope to reach 67,500 words by the end of the year. That means that over the next week, I have to create an average of 25 new words a day.

I reached my goal!

As of December 29, Kankonian has just reached 67,500 words.

Word #67,500 was holtzehimezis, meaning "quadrilingual" (the noun) or "tetraglot" (hol, four + tzehimez, language + -is, suffix for a person).

At the end of the year, I'll share with all of you some of the other new words I added trying to reach my 67,500 goal.

At least by CWS reckoning, Rireinutire has reached the rather odd milestone of 13,579 words. Word #13,579 was

kototara n. IN legume

which is a simple tatpurusha from koto 'pod' + tara 'plant'.

See? Not every Rireinutire lexeme has ten million glosses in Human!

Word #67,890 in Kankonian: la*engov, meaning "modulus of elasticity". It comes from la*eng, the adjective for "elastic", plus the suffix -ov (ilt, tall -> iltov, height; burk, heavy -> burkov, weight, etc.)

Does 78,910 words count as a milestone? 91,011? I'll probably at least count 101,112 as a milestone . . . 123,456 definitely, if I get that far.

70,000 words today!

Word #70,000 was gahetshik, meaning "megapixel". The gahe- at the beginning was taken from gahelsi (million). It was modeled after gahe*inam (megadeath). Tshik is simply the word for pixel.

Happy news, everyone! Shaleyan has just notched its three thousandth word! The word was babaz, which means "numb".

This makes Shaleyan the second Lehola conlang to reach a lexicon of 3,000 words, and the second largest Lehola lexicon after Kankonian's monstrous 71,000.

A few seconds ago, Achel reached 3,000 words with zhui, an adverb meaning "why (what purpose?)".

This makes Achel the third Leholang to reach 3,000 words, and the third largest Leholang lexicon after Shaleyan and Kankonian.
