Concept list Mann 2004 209

This list contains those elements which -- according to the analysis of the compiler -- occur in the union of both lists proposed by Swadesh (1952, 1955. Although Mann himself writes that this list contains 210 items, we could only find 209 items in both representations which he published. The difference in contrast to the "traditional" accounts which list 207 items is that Mann counts certain concepts differently. Thus, he counts "grease" and "fat (nount)" as different concepts.
