Concept list Cross 1964 241

This list was designed by the author for a lexicostatistical investigation of Romance languages. Note that the list itself was produced long before Swadesh published his first concept lists (Swadesh 1950, 1952). It is not easy to interprete what the author intends to say in the paper, but it seems that his approach was partially inspired by Swadesh due to personal communication, but also by an article by Kroeber and Chrétien (1937).
