Concept list Pallas 1789 285

This list corresponds to a large dictionary, commissioned by Catherine the Great and compiled by Peter Simon Pallas, which was intended to describe all languages of the world. The list itself is a reduced list of the larger list. The list is not a completely reduced form of the original list, but also contains certain revisions. As an example, the concept "hand", which is ambiguous in Russian, where it may also refer to "arm" was now explicitly translated as manus in Latin, thus making it very clear that the broader concept "arm / hand" was no longer intended.
