Concept list Bowern 2011 204

This concept lists consists of 204 concepts which only partially derive from Swadesh's list of 200 concepts and 100 concepts. The authors note that 164 out of 204 items correspond to "Swadesh's list", but it is not clear which of the two lists they mean, since they quote an older source by Swadesh which contains both the list of 100 and the list of 200 items. The reason for the exclusion of concepts were both pragmatic (absence of concepts in the languages under investigation), and theoretical (ambiguity in the target languages).
