Concept list List 2016 180

This list was taken from the supplementary material of a study on partial cognate detection and comprises a larger concept lists, the 北京大学 (eds.) 1964 (1964), consisting of about 800 concepts which were translated into 18 dialect varieties. The smaller list of 180 concepts was selected with respect to the relative frequency of the concepts in other datasets. While the authors link to our Concepticon in their original publication, we re-adjusted some of their links, as it turned out they were either ambiguous or not precise enough. Thus, we linked «left» to «LEFT HAND», as the Chinese concept label in the original source and the dialect words suggest this reading. We also added information on the page number and the identification number in the original source of the Cíhuì.
