    Let's say a word has four letters. At least one must be a vowel (stir). At least one must be a consonant (lieu).

    5C1 * 21C1 * 26C1 * 26C1 * 4! = 5*21*26*26*24 = 1.7 million possible four letter words. Some repeat letters (loll).

    Then add 1,2,3,5,6,7,however many letters you want as the max.

    Billions. There is no theoretical limit, because you can simply add more and more letters to make as many newer and longer words as you like.
