Concept list Kitchen 2009 95

This is a shortend version of Swadesh's list of 100 items which was used to study Semitic languages. The authors note in the paper that they reduced the list to 96 items (without specifying further reasons), but it seems they excluded 5 items in the end, at least this is the number of words we could identify in their supplementary material. The list contains some deviations from Swadesh's original list, with the most pregnant one being the concept "fly (noun)" which is marked as a verb in Swadesh's original list.
