For some time now, the English speaking linguistics world has anxiously awaited the arrival of our millionth word in English (see here and here). I have a bottle of Freixenet permanently on ice just for that wondrous day. But alas! It appears that Inuktitut has beaten my native language to the prize of all prizes. According to this story about Microsoft's Inuit language software,
More than one million words have been programmed in Inuktitut through the collaboration, about 5,000 of which are new Inuktitut words (emphasis added).
I'm a gracious loser. Congratulations Inuktitut. See you at the 2 millionth mark.
