I know about 45,592 words! has a word test thing. I tried it at college level, and got 9/10 words (admittedly, one was a correct process of elimination). Thus:
I know 45,592 words

Mom got 10/10 (so knows a mere 50K words ☺).

You can try the test yourself at (needs scripting); post the results in the comments below!

While Big Liz looked fed up at the end, and Prince Philip seemed to be having a blast, I think the out and out beyond-the-call-of-duty are the guys who stood atop the symphony boat, singing for hours, in what might be the most objectionable weather you could expect in June...
