English Words

Hello everyone, I'm afraid I need some help again.

Do any of you know where I can find some info/stats on English words? I mean something like number of words, number of nouns and verbs, number of compound words, loan words...stuff like that. Preferably, I need the breakdown for Modern English along with Old and/or Middle English.

Some background, just in case: I'm doing an assignment for a morphology class, and my group is looking at the changes that the English language has undergone (and is undergoing) to try and 'predict' how English will look like in the future.

Thanks in advance linguaphiles :)
