Let me put it this way: oi vey!!! (could be wai di mi, should you rather go for Judeo-Spanish instead of the Yiddish so ingrained into English*. Even French, known for... long talks, does not have this many words**. English, over half a bil??? Let us be serious for a change!
BTW, the Bank of English used to have some free services, but no more: the prices are prohibitive for most of us, and Collins dictionaries I checked do not indicate how common/obscure a word might be... Any other source? A dependable, yet free one perhaps...
