vocab size of duolingo's Swedish tree

Can anyone hazard a guess at the approximate vocabulary size of someone who has finished the Swedish tree, presuming they've memorised all the words from every lesson? Maybe one of the moderators knows the number of words?

I had no idea I was learning so many. That's awesome.

Is that counting only distinct words or all forms? E.g. would "flicka, flickan, flickor, flickorna" be counted as 1 word or 4?

I'm pretty sure that it is the former.

I read somewhere that the entire tree gives you around 75-80% of the most common language. I have no idea how accurate that is nor can I remember where I read it but if I do then I'll edit my post.

I believe that there are around 2300-2500 words.
