Well, since none has offered to pose these crucial questions, I will:

1. What constitutes a word?

2. Which of the many Englishes are covered by the statement concerning the
number of words in English.

Neither has been answered to my knowledge.  Correct me if I'm wrong,

Ignore this useless posting if you wish.
