"At the current pace of a new English-language word created about every 98 minutes, English will cross the Million Word Mark on June 10th, 2009 at 10:22 am (Stratford-on Avon Time)"
There's a clock for the countdown to the Millionth English Word at http://www.languagemonitor.com/ Accurate? Probably not, but worth discussing.
There are also links to articles on 'When Does a Word become a Word?' and 'Neologisms'. Hours of fun for all the family!
