It's not possible to count the words in any language, because there is no universal definition of what a word is. But most estimates place the number between 40,000 and 160,000words (which is the same range for almost all other languages).

Note: English is an exception. It has the largest number of words of any language in the world, estimated at 170,000 to 250,000 words. No language has more words than English.

Haitian Creole is mainly based on 18th Century colonial French, and African languages from the Fon family. There are also many elements from Arabic, Spanish, Taíno, Arawak and English.

There is no such thing as "Creole" architecture. There are many Creole languages in the world, and one must first identify what is meant by "Creole" (e.g. Jamaican Creole, Gullah, Haitian Creole, etc.) before an architectural type can be attributed to it.
