This list was used to reconstruct Proto-North-Western Burmish, based on a comparison of several Burmish languages. The concept list itself is a 406 item list that was apparently created by the SIL project as a specificic concept list for South-East Asia. This list itself exists in different versions, with the most recent one consisting of SIL 2002 436. This latest list, however, is essentially identical with the earlier 406 item list, with only 30 additional concepts added in the end. Mann's concept list of 406 items is not complete, since he did not find forms for all of the words in the Burmish languages. Those forms are marked with an asterisk in our representation.
