You're welcome.
Urban Basanawa may also have more than 5,000 entities as counted by CWS
But you don't know for sure? Does it take some time to update the lexicon counts on CWS?

After long struggles, Yélian finally bursted the wall of

4,000 dictionary entries.

The 4,000st entry was espegérasce [ˌɛspəˈxɛraskə] - an adjective with the rough meaning of "the volume of one teespoon", "one teespoon full". Etymology:
geral - spoon < Proto-Mendric *g-rr-l - ladle
espegeral - teespoon < esper (egg), r got dissimilated (so literally "eggspoon")

Changed to an adjective with the measurement suffix -(e)sce (l got dissimilated).
Edit: teaspoon I meant, of course. Also, espegérasce is an adverb, not an adjective.

Would like to, but unfortunately my lexicon is a plain German - Yélian dictionary which is useless to most of the conlang community, I am afraid.

Understandable, similar things happen to me too.

My mother tongue is not English, either(and my mother tongue is not even an European language), and my lexicon of Nevotak(with 1,000+ words now) and Sakawi(with 600+ words now) are not explained in English, I still need to anglicize the lexicon of Nevotak and Sakawi

Nice! (Although the correct spelling is "teaspoon".)

The name reminds me of Esperga, a large solar system in the Lehola Galaxy.

At long last, the Géarthnuns-English lexicon has reached 12,000 entries (English-Géarthnuns lagging behind at 10,650) [:D] . Man, that was a slog! New words à gogo, to be sure, but new entries can be like pulling teeth. Anyway, onward and upward.

I know I don't post here anymore, but Kankonian just achieved its 54,321st word!

The word is Anlingson, the name of a language once spoken on Suam, an island on Kankonia.

You can search this thread if you want to find word #43,210 for comparison. Or word #45,678.

Congratulations! I missed this! I know what you're really anticipating is the 14,000-word milestone, though, because seven is magical.

Thanks, guys. [:)]

Let me stress again, however, that I'm counting entries; I have absolutely no idea how many actual words there are. Consequently, while word coinage marches intrepidly on, entry-count moves forward only ever so slowly. Since almost six months to the day of that last post, the Géarthnuns-English count has only risen to 12,130, and the English-Géarthnuns count to 10,747. 14,000 entries remain the next magical milestone, to be sure (7 [B)] ), but unless I eschew my current practice of simply coining words as I need them, grab a taxonomy book of flora and fauna, and go completely f***ing nuts, it's going to be a while in getting there. No worries, I'm in it for the long haul -- and besides, while I readily confess that for me the numbers provide a psychological frisson, as with the Chinese 101 question, "How many characters do you know?", those numbers, insofar as you can keep track, ultimately become meaningless (although for conlanging, a number may indicate that your lang wasn't something you whipped up in 5th-period chem because you were bored).
