My first five-digit declining stairstep number!

"Nisparyu" was word #43,210. It means blissful.

Just got off the batphone with the Academia Gearthnuntiæ, who/which seemed begrudgingly appeased for the nonce. I would be even happier if this milestone had been reached a little earlier this year. 7,000 was achieved in March of last year, and 3,000 entries per year, loosey-goosey, seems a decent pace for vocabulary development generated the old-fashioned way (though at that rate, by the time I reach π x 104, the number of the conlanging beast, I will be quite well "of a certain age"), but meaningful dates as a quasi-"deadline" for reaching this lean-to on the mountain seemed to come and go. But hey, we'll take it! Will unpack my sleeping bag and spend the night here before heading up the next scarp. May build a campfire and make me some s'mores. [:P]

Thanks to all who've contributed to the vocab-building threads and thereby assisted and participated in the progress. [<3]

Next stop: 14,000! * (and you should know why [}:D] )

Oh, I just saw this (and was delighted that you have kept alive the "conlanging beast" joke!)

10,000 -- congratulations, Lao Kou!

And Géarthnuns is AWESOME! I've loved it ever since you played it in the Snowball Game.

Today I achieved a total milestone of 159 verb roots and 185 words, not to mention my 75 pronouns.
Not much, but I'm very fickle about what my words look and sound like.

I'm quite scared by the 75 pronouns above (really how'd you do that?), but, anyway, Proto-Gigxpoyan has just reached 200 words, the 200th being:

'pakt' n. mushroom, fungus

Easy, you take each person except 1st and divide them into two numbers and three genders, then you take the accusative pronouns and add suffixes to them.

I achieved 190 words in my conlang and 191 verb roots, which when taking into account the massive derivation system, we get maybe 600 words?

I just entered the 109th word into the Dánıdoo lexicon. It was yebí - crow. [:)]
Edit: ...and the 110th: nííh - mind.

Today Kankonian reached a repdigit -- 44,444 words.

The 44,444th was kyoub, meaning "jugate".

I'm unfortunately not as far as all of you... [:(]

At least I just made Yélian pass the 1,500st lexeme. It was bozoner, meaning fence.
Heaven and Earth, but I feel the color of the cake when you keep the Victoria.
I had a mantra on the moss and I had to go to bed.

Congratulations -- 1,500 is great!

If you look at the first page of this thread you'll find people saying things like, "My conlang has like 9 words". So you've gotten farther than the vast majority of conlangs will ever go.

How long have you been working on Yélian? Seems you're not a scrapper.

Hurra I have 245 words!

Latest entry was ʾaẕnuhaj - consciousness

All the while I haven't a word for "here" or "there".

Slowly climbing the ladder of linguistic functionality whilst contemplating if I will succeed in my ultimate goal of building a community of speakers for complex, naturalistic and euphonous Vrkhazhian by the end of my life.

I have at least 180 nouns.

I started to figure it out on April 14th, 2014. Before I played a lot with the phonology (just in mind), had absolutely no grammar and in fact only two words which were the first ones: iyi, child and naku, fire.

And I saw that I actually have more than 1,500 words, because I didn't count particles, pronouns and numbers.

Yay! Dánıdoo has 210 words. The latest word is láásíí - feast, formed with the imperfect stems of - to eat and - to drink (alcohol). Just before that I coined the verb lın - lıın - líın - to drink (water, etc.).

Some awesome Semitic-style verbs there, Ahzoh! (Yes, I actually checked your list out.)

That makes a lexicon of 576 total. Looks as if Vrkhazian is finally starting to settle.
