I know about 45,592 words!
Dictionary.com has a word test thing. I tried it at college level, and got 9/10 words (admittedly, one was a correct process of elimination). Thus:
Mom got 10/10 (so knows a mere 50K words ☺).
You can try the test yourself at http://dynamo.dictionary.com/placement/level (needs scripting); post the results in the comments below!
