Compatibility[edit]

To be compatible, it would be MUCH more helpful to limit the lists to the last "official" version of Swadesh 1971/2, and moreover, to follow strictly the explanations given in Swadesh 1955, because Swadesh, out of his own intensive studies, knew VERY WELL, WHY he reduced the list to 1000 meanings. Momentarily there are too much differences and ambiguities to be useful for any comparison! I gave that list at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swadesh_list.HJJHolm 15:05, 10 July 2011 (UTC)
