How many times do you need to say a word for it to be part of your vocabulary?
The average person needs to hear something twenty times before they truly learn it. To make a word part of your vocabulary, you should use it as often as you can - look for ways to use it in conversations, write it down, look for it on a sign or listen for it in conversations around you. You don't have to actually count how many times you have used it, because then you are thinking about the number and not the word!

well, I heard it is about 5000 words! 5000 may be the number of words a typical person uses. When it comes to vocabulary, it is important to distinguish betw…een the words someone understands, and the words they actually use. An average adult with English as a first language understands between 50,000 and 250,000 words. Some people with very large vocabularies, such as Winston Churchill, have been estimated to understand up to 400,000 words. Most people actually use about 10% of the words they understand. So a person who understands 50,000 words probably uses about 5,000. Shakespeare used about 29,000 words in his plays & sonnets, so we might estimate that he had a vocabulary of 290,000 words. Note: There are at least 475,000 words in the English language, with some estimates as high as 1,000,000. And there are thousands added every year (Twitter, anyone?). So, there's lots to learn.
You can make about 140 to 180 words using the letters in the word vocabulary, depending on what you count as a word aa bravo crab racy aal bray cru ray … ab bro cry raya aba buoy cub rob ably bur cur roc abo bura curably royal aboral burl curb rub aby burly curl ruby acyl bury curly ruly al buy curvy rya ala by la ulva alar byrl lab urb alary cab labor vac alb cabal labour vacua alba calo labra vacuolar ar calory lac valor arb calvary lacy valour arc car lar var arco carb larva vara arval carbo laura vary arvo carboy lav vau aryl carl lava vocab aura carob lavabo vocably aural carol lay vocabular ava caul lo vocabulary avo cavalry lob vocal ay cavy lobar volar ba cay loca ya baa claro lory yar baal clary lour yo bacula clay loury yob bal clour luv you bar cloy lycra your barca club oar yuca bay coal oba bayou coala oca bloc coaly ocular blur cob or bo cobra ora boa col oral boar cola orb bola colby orby bolar coly orc bora cor orca boral coral our boy corby ova boyar cory oval boyla covary ovary bra coy ovular brava craal ovulary
Hi, Good question. Here are some interesting numbers based on my limited knowledge. Please note, these numbers are just estimates. Vocabulary Count Grade 1 Student = 1,000+ w…ords Normal Person (Graduate) = 5,000 to 6,000+ words University Professor = 15,000+ words Spelling Bee Winners = 30,000+ (as claimed by them) College Dictionary (Abridged) = 50,000 - 70,000 Total Words in English Language = 250,000+ (Growing) Dictionary (Un-abridged) with derivatives = 450,000+ Shakespeare used 60,000 words The above claims must be wrong. While English has hundreds of thousands of words, many are obsolete. Scientific words enter the language faster than obsolete ones die. I know a great many words, but surely not all. My guess: maybe 8,000 or 9,000 tops. Personal judgement keeps me from ever using the 2,000 or 3,000 oddballs. My education includes six years of Classics in prep school, four years at no mean college, a year of law school, and grad school at the US's supposedly top university. A working English vocabulary uses the 2,000 commonest words over and over. Shakespeare is our language's acknowledged master. An exact count of all words from works published using Shakespeare's name, totals 17,300-plus, not 60,000! Some of his as yet undiscovered works might yield a few hundred new ones, but doubtful. An English professor at a top university with a word-collecting proclivity might know 11,000 to 14,000 English words--half or more oddball words. Anyone with the basic 2,000 plus 4,000 more in a range of the more everyday specialties can read, hear, write, or speak very broadly. Claims that an accomplished master of English knows 12,000 or even 20,000 words needlessly scare any trying to master English at a higher level. [The imagined professor is an extreme word-collector not a word-user.] Knowing 6,000 words is challenge enough. The estimated extra words I know over 6,000 are just for my personal amusement. People would justifiably either shun me or throw things at me for using those oddities. I urge all to quit hyperventilating like Chicken Little and unthinkingly repeating others' claim. So if I said "The sky is falling!" would you repeat it? If that question still has intuitive appeal, try this instead: "Your retrievable vocabulary needs not over 6,000 words to make you a master of the English language."
If you believe Jesus is the God of the Old and New Testaments and spoke through the prophets in the writing of all scripture then 311x. In the Old Testament: 131x In… the New Testament: 180x If you are asking about while Jesus walked the earth, then in the NT it is recorded that he personally said it : 51x (and then 2x in Revelation.)
there is no single answer, the Oxford English Dictionary containes 171476 words in constant use and 47146 obsolete words. This suggests about 250,000 words. However with… other technical additions there may be as many as 750,000 in total
'Green eggs and Ham' contains 50 different words. 49 of the words are only one syllable in length; the only word longer than one syllable is "anywhere" (excluding the hy…phenated 'Sam-I-Am'). Supposedly, Dr Seuss' publisher challenged him to write a book using no more than 50 words and 'Green Eggs and Ham' was the result.
Over millions of words. A Kindergartener has about 50,000 words in their vocabulary and a Mental Issued person has 34,999 words.
103 times. It is way too many times! But I guess it's an R rated movie, so it can have as many swear words as it likes at that rating!

It can mean many things he likes you needs to no way else is in the world like what other chicks r and could mean he needs sPace from u and if he just doesn't want to hurt you…r fillings or he could like some other girl and still likes u but wants to see if he can get her it can mean many things it all depends on the way he says it or what words he says before or after or what jr talking about
It all depends on how you count them. He uses close to 30,000 in the plays alone, including proper names. There were probably a lot more that he understood but didn't use (wha…t is known as "passive vocabulary").
