This is a very small concept list created for the purpose of language comparison in New Guinea. It is not entirely clear from the source how the author ended up with this list of 35 items. According to the source, the author used some standardized list of 100 words, 57 of which also appear on the 100 item list of Swadesh (1955) (see Wilson 1969: 76). No further information could be found explaining why the 35 items were chosen for the survey.
