Concept list Gallatin 1836 180

This list was used in Gallatin’s groundbreaking ethnographic work on the native languages in North America, particularly in the areas west and north-west of the Rocky Mountains. The selection process for items on the list was centered around the idea of showing the differences between the different native languages. As such, the glosses were built from basic vocabulary as well as very general concepts, thought to exist in the majority of languages under investigation.
