Concept list Zhao 2006 201

This is a concept list prepared to illustrate basic lexemes in Zhaozhuang Bai, a Southern Bai variety spoken in the South of Dali in Yunnan (China). The author intended to use Swadesh's Swadesh 1952 200, but there are a few derivations. Interestingly, some concepts are also identical (like the Chinese items for SKY and DAY (NOT NIGHT)), due to ambiguities in the glossing language. Furthermore, as in many Chinese lists, we observe a wrong translation from DULL, being rendered as STUPID rather than DULL of a knife.
