Feel free to remove this thread if it's just annoying... But I'm really puzzled by the fact that a recent thread mentions around 2900 words in Russian. Given that a verb "declined" in six persons counts as 6 "new" words, and the same for adjectives, that leaves....what? 500 actual distinct words?
I like the fact that you have various examples of the same word / verb but that shouldn't count as a new word...
Is anyone else bothered or curious about that ?
