Concept list Swadesh 1955 100

Swadesh's most famous concept list of 100 items. The original article lists all 215 items originally proposed in the first article on lexicostatistics in 1950, but marks the most stable 92 items, and adds eight more items which became then the list of 100 items as shown here. In the list, we marked the eight additional items with an asterisk preceding the concept label. Since this list was only implicitly provided in Swadesh's original publication, we ordered the items alphabetically.
