This list was specifically designed to carry out lexical studies of Quechuan and Aymaran languages (McMahon et al. (2005)) and kindly provided by the compiler. Inspired by Matisoff's CALMSEA list containing concepts which are "Culturally and Linguistically Meaningful for Southeast Asia", but not necessarily for other language areas, Heggarty calls this list the CALMA list ("Culturally and Linguistically Meaningful for the Andes"). Apart from the raw list data, the data provided by the author also contains additional columns in which this new list is compared with earlier concept lists, like the two lists proposed by Swadesh (100 items, and 200 items), and the short list proposed by Yakhontov (35 items).
