Hyphen Mini-Concordance

I took a dare for this summer, let’s see how I do.  This post will be a mini-concordance of the hyphenated words in the work, based on which we will explore some ideas about language and world-building.  Even assembling the 374 words is painstaking; let’s consider this post a work in progress for a little while (would that be a work-in-progress?).
