vocab in Humash

shalom list and computer software people.

would someone of you be able to answer some 'simple' questions that i can't
get at?

1. how many vocabulary words occur in Gen-Deut? 
i.e. nouns, others, plus verbs according to binyanim 
(but not counting pual/hofal/nifal when simple passives of active verbs. i
do not count a root as a vocabulary word.) 
[e.g. t s i v v a / t s u v v a  is one verb. 
tsadaq, tsiddeq, hitsdiq, hitsTadeq would be four words.
nibba, hitnabbe would be two words.]

(my gut guess is around 4000-5000 for the tora, but i'd like a 'real'
NB: this is not the number of total word occurrences: 79856, nor is it the
number of roots involved.)

2. how many vocabulary words (again, counting verbs according to
non-passive, individual binyanim) occur in jonah, rut and judges?

thank you for any help you can offer.
