Concept list Alpher 1999 151

This list was originally proposed in order to carry out lexicostatistical studies of Australian languages. The first 100 words constitute the list of O'Grady and Klokeid in 1969; the next 20 are the words in Hale's (1961) list that are not also in O'Grady and Klokeid's; the next 25 are words in Black's (nd a.) list that are not in either of the above; the last 6 words (relevant for the most part in the monsoon tropics of Australia) are the authors' additions.
