Bill Mounce in his introductory textbook *Basics of Biblical Greek* says
that there are 5437 different words in the Greek New Testament and that they
occur a total of 138,162 times. He bases his information on the computer
program Gramcord. As a little aside, Mounce also points out that 319 words
account for 110,425 word occurences or 79.92% of the total word count.[cf
Mounce, page 17].
