KNOW THE ODDS AND DETERMINE PRIORITIES. There are more than 700,000 words in the English language, and no one ever knows them all. Above the 50,000-100,000 words needed for average adult communication, you'll have to determine which words you need to actively use (or at least passively recognize) according to your own current interests and priorities.
If you do a Google, you'll find estimates that vary from 20,000 to 100,000.
