Concept list Tryon 1983 200

This list is based on the two lists published in Samarin (1967), and was used to carry out a lexicostatistic subgrouping of the languages of the Solomon islands. The compilers note that they replaced forty items which were found unsuitable for their comparison with alternative concepts. In the list, those concepts which, according to the compilers, stem from Samarin's list of 100 items are marked with one asterisk, those items which stem from the list of 200 items are marked with two asterisks, and the 40 additional items are left unmarked. This list is a subset of a larger list of 324 items that was collected and published along with the source and used for broader investigations, including the determination of regular sound correspondences.
