Progress check

I did a check to see how many words in the dictionary are basically ready for print. It takes the computer about 15 or 20 minutes to return the results of such a search so I don't do it very often. Anyway, I've just passed the 10,000-word mark (out of roughly 12,000 words). So I'm about 5/6 of the way there...

This is good news, notwithstanding the fact that as the pool of remaining words dries up it will contain a higher density of ugly fish which I've avoided catching: those problem words which need completely revising, or which require substantial looking up...

Anyway: 2,000 to go.
