I now have 500 verbs and 310 non-verbs, thus my lexicon totals 810. Almost there to that 1000 lexicon milestone.
My list of those 500 verbs: http://conworkshop.info/view_article.ph ... 2ce0b5223a

Yélian just hit another mark: A week or so ago, with a humiliatingly common word (genum [ˈxɛnʊm], what means banana), Yélian had

3,000 words

Meanwhile, it's about 3150.

By the way, my new conlang Yélian has achieved 220 roots. <--- NO! [:D]

*By the way, my new conlang CAELIAN has achieved 220 roots. <--- better :mrgreen:

Oh, I haven't seen this thread, but Hoskh hit 100 on CWS a couple of days ago...

Now I have 531 verbs and 582 non-verbs, thus over 1113 words. I will try for 2000, and then my conlang shall surely be able to be used in everyday.

Proto-Ṭelö, the Teles lang inspired by the Paleosiberian langs, now has two words:
ṭelö /t'elø/ ‘person’
ṗoŋka /p'oŋkɑ/ ‘to see’

The Drunworld langs are still all in the same spreadsheet with ~250 English entries, but with gaps, so I'd estimate 150-200 for each of them. (I should really separate them someday.)

Notice: Chüi Baris just reached its 401st word - furthest I've ever got!
I read this again today and I was wondering . . . has Chüi Baris reached the 1,000 mark yet?

Hœbric has 540 words to-day! Not counting superficial conjugations and inflections except 'to be'.

Chüi Baris specifically is kind of on permanent hold, but its ancestor language Chudihr currently has approx 800 words.
My conlang history goes somewhat like this:
Faelnivian A complete nooblang that I will never mention again [;)]
Chudihr My first serious attempt at naturalism. Possibly my most developped language as far as lexicon and grammar are concerned. The most complete version of the grammar is here, and a version of the lexicon here.
An example: uehrnoţiai se uehrkodui chiaos fiŗa om. luŗai se abŗi lichtiohr ikùanichi eşu iuidutebiri ainifef isaue eşu iulofaiche.
Chudihr has two descendants: Chüi Baris and Monnush. These both have a few hundred words each, and one of my goals here was to see how different I could make them look.
An example sentence:
Chudihr - şemonkredes ambi aghdonghe.
Chüi Baris - šenkrē ambi chiüleghr kaukots.
Monnush - hōvéñil šmonreð oi viðlēr. ( < *fughi *feni *fil *şemonkredes *fughi *chùidelechihr)

Another of my languages is Besh Anglic, a hypothetical future I devised for British English, spoken in like 3000AD ish.
I pretty much derive words as I go, so there's not much documetnation.
I also have Boralian, which you can go read about here - I should probably update that again sometime. [B)]

Finally we have Torsane that I'm actively working on - I used it in the latest Conlang Relay. It looks like this:
Ba s’nuk ei a jon llu res wot ōg s’llu res inam s’llu res guwak s’llu ma – dadū jonak; b’ō ūrunte s’tebe a jon ti b’illow is.
Ti s'ubro a d'īk no dien ti; da tew graillum ber ti.
Eresse anga paris cur neduc, a san teonga.
The only thing more dangerous than doubt is certainty.

50,000 words!

On 8:28 p.m. on November 5, 2015, my Kankonian dictionary reached its 50,000th word with ashpiarb. "Ashpiarb" is short for ashpiarbenanikh, a word meaning "telambulance" (teleporting ambulance).

Image

Quite possibly the most momentous lexicon milestone ever reached by someone while posting on this boarf. (Classical Yiklamu has more words with 91,591, but Mark P. Line only posted on this board once or twice, and joined only after his conlang reached that size.)

Calls for a celebration. Lao Kou, would you like some zhinwa?

You also coined the word "boarf", which is something special.

congratulations, Khemehekis, let me call you a saint of conlangers.

I hope I can be more conscientious like you and be as continuously industrious in expanding the vocabulary of existing conlangs as you. :)

What exactly is a boarf? Sounds like Boarisch and barf, which is not very nice to Bavarian speakers.
