Dear Enes AVCU,
   Unfortunately, there is no way to do this inside CLAN.  I'm not really sure how havingoutput of this type would advance our understanding of lexical distribution properties such as word length beyond the type of information you could get directly from the WDLEN program.  You would still need to further combine this information into length types and that is what WDLEN does directly.
