Good thing, since as with any language if you want to know every word 
you'll need to read the entire dictionary.

Most of are less ambitious.  There are still things in there I've never 
read.

For newcomers I usually suggest skimming the second and third chapters 
of the User Guide to get oriented, then poke around the 78 tutorials 
included in the install to find one that grabs their attention and play 
around with that, modifying it to see what happens.  As they come across 
language elements unknown to them, at that point the Dictionary can be 
helpful, esp, the See Also section.
