A Break: Words

Found this interesting bit of info over the internet.

Shakespeare used approximately 22,000 different words in his published works.
Well-educated people today, use about 5,000 different words when speaking.
Most of us have a “working vocabulary” of 2,000 words.
50 words make up 60% of everything we say.
Mmh where are you standing. mh? There’s no wonder Shakespeare is still holding a good standing in popularity.
