why would that be? colloquial language (nad that's what is to be  
considered) contains only several thousends words, still a lot but far  
away from millions.

but that's a problem with every dictionary -- you never can contain every  
possible word.

i don't use the keyboard and i do not follow the discussion close, but  
what always struck me odd was the use of a text file.
why not use a db? it would enable learning, too.
