Concept list Trask 1996 207

According to the author, this list is taken from Gudschinsky (1956), but since Gudschinsky only has 200 items, the lists are not completely identical, and it seems more that it follows Comrie's merger of the two Swadesh lists which was, to our knowledge, the first list that merged the first and second list of Swadesh (1952, 1955) to 207 items. This list is presented in a introductory textbook for historical linguistics as an example for the method of glottochronology and lexicostatistics. The words of the 100 item list in the same book, taken from Swadesh (1955), are given in bold face in the text, and in starred form in our source.
