      "Tens of thousands _or more_" is a tall order; it would be difficult
      to collect so much stuff even for a living language :), and the
      reconstruction of PIE is of necessity only fragmentary. You'll find
      many roots and words in the Leiden databases;

      http://www.indo-european.nl/cgi-bin/main.cgi?root=leiden

      Just don't take every form cited in Pokorny's dictionary at face
      value. The notation is rather outdated and some of the
      reconstructions are shakier than others. It's a very useful tool
      provided that one knows how to use it. And the best path to learning
      that is through reading and asking questions.
