Based on l8l8 paragraphs in the dict., with average 3-4 derivs per entry; 266 paras. in the supplement, assuming 2 derivs per entry. There's also a list of several hundred I'm still thinking about. Poor little gestating Gwr: 97 words defined, 467 awaiting definition when I get my portion of the Relay; approx. 38,000 protoforms, done by hand in view of my computer illiteracy and lack even of Langmaker.
