Concept list Thomas 1960 168

This list provides stability ranks for four Mon-Khmer languages and compares them with the ranks presented in the 215 item list from Swadesh (1955). The author does not provide all of the 215 items presented in the study by Swadesh, but only a subset of them. The 215 items themselves were first presented in Swadesh (1950) where they formed the basis of all initial calculations of Swadesh's lexicostatistics and glottochronology.
