What are the most basic, elementary, core concepts that virtually all languages express? Many linguists have put a great deal of effort into answering this question, and several short word lists have come out of it. The most famous are probably the Swadesh lists, based mostly on intuition and refined over time. Later lists like the Leipzig-Jakarta have used more stringent methods to determine which vocabulary items are most resistant to borrowing and change over time.

What I've done here is taken five such word lists (Swadesh 100, Ranked Swadesh 40, Swadesh-Yakhontov, Leipzig-Jakarta, and Woodward) and kept only the items that occur in at least two of the lists.

Nouns:
1) name
2) water
3) blood
4) fire

If you'd like to help out by translating this list into another language not listed here, just post your work as a comment, and I'll be sure to pay you some lingots. A big thanks to everybody who's helped so far!

Formatting note: To keep your line breaks in a Duolingo post (without skipping a line), you have to include two spaces at the end of each line.

Update: I've added a second list based more on word frequency, bringing the total to an even 200. If you like this kind of thing, check out my website for more!

I preferred the Yamato words (訓読み) over the Sino-Japanese ones (音読み). There are quite a few words like ichi and hitotsu where two words of different origin coexist with slightly different usage: とし:ねん or にんげん:ひと or かんそう:かわいた . I had missed the yamato 身(mi from sashimi). Now every concept has at least one yamato word.

The reason for my preference was that the list is restricted to basic words anyway in order to show where a language comes from. It is not supposed to give a survey of the whole vocabulary and its historical development. I hope my bias was somewhat linguistically sound.

That makes sense, but I wouldn't want the lists to be biased toward "native" words just to show "genetic" relationships among languages. I consider borrowing to be a perfectly valid form of language change, and if that obscures relationships, so be it. It strengthens other relationships. In this case, however, I think both forms ought to be listed, since they are both in common use.

About 身 mi though, I think ミート miito is probably a bit more common as a way to refer to meat. In any case, I'd list 肉 niku first. It doesn't hurt to list all three, but the most common/broad form should always go first (except perhaps in the case of gender/number distinctions, where you'll just want to be consistent).

No Japanese course yet. I hear they'd like to, but it's not even really in development yet. Probably the writing system is a big hurdle. I'm anxious to see how they do with Russian. Cyrillic presents much less of a problem than kanji/kana, but it's still an issue. All the completed courses so far use the Roman alphabet.

11) ear - isn't it really 'tainga'? it only became 'tenga' because of our tendency to shorten words. 43) foot/leg - paa/hita 51) rope - tali or lubid 52) path/road - it could also be 'daan' and isn't road 'kalsada'?

for the verbs, maybe you should put the root words instead? 60) come - i think '❤❤❤❤❤' is also valid.

73) good - 'maganda' can be used sometimes. 84) old - luma or 'matanda'

Thanks for your review

11) ear - isn't it really 'tainga'? it only became 'tenga' because of our tendency to shorten words.

You're right, it's tainga

for the verbs, maybe you should put the root words instead?

At first, I prefer the root word, but when I try to translate "die" and "kill", it becomes confusing. Any suggestion?

60) come - i think '❤❤❤❤❤' is also valid.

switched to "pumunta". "dumating" is closer to arrive.

73) good - 'maganda' can be used sometimes.

I don't think so. Do you have any example?

well, "die" and "kill" have "patay" as their root word, but the conjugation becomes different when the tenses are incorporated. so maybe you can just say that as a footnote or something.

all i can think of is "magandang umaga". and also we say "maganda yan" for "that's good" instead of "mabuti yan". "mabuti yan" is also right but i think it sounds weird, and i only hear old people say that. lol

Yeah, the root word is far simpler. I'll just add foot note.

all i can think of is "magandang umaga". and also we say "maganda yan" for "that's good" instead of "mabuti yan". "mabuti yan" is also right but i think it sounds weird, and i only hear old people say that. lol

Hmm, not bad. Anyway, the english word "good" can have many meaning, so yeah I'll take it.

Hey men, tama yong mga translation mo. Wait there are a few ones though: 57.) know = laman. Diba know = alam?

sana meron ng Tagalog course soon. Para saan ba ito? I am more used to the Spanish translation for numbers, colors, places, objects but it is still understood. But this is a great work man. Thumbs up : )

Thanks for making this list! Some small corrections and comments:

27) tree is also 木 mù (even looks like a tree) or 树木 shù mù

87) additionally there are the formal variants 您 nín (singular) and 您们 nín men (plural)

91) also: two 两 liǎng (e.g. when counting)

92) not is simply 不 (不是 is not be, but can sometimes be used similarly to not or no in English, e.g. in an answer), or 没 měi (especially when negating 有 yǒu (have) or talking about past events)

93) "this" can also be simply 这 zhè (这个 could be seen as "this one", depending on context)

95) additionally you could use for all: 都 dōu / 大家 dà jiā

Thanks for the Turkish list!!!

About your louse comment, I was thinking the same thing at first. Even the plural lice is not so common, so why include it in such a short list? Thing thing is, these are not necessarily frequently occurring words, or even useful words; they are "core concepts". In this context, "core" is defined technically as resistance to change over time. Linguists use lists like this to evaluate the similarity (and probable relatedness) of languages.

As a next step, I'd like to put some word frequency lists together for a few major languages (at least Mandarin, English, and Spanish) to see which concepts are most frequently expressed across this sample of languages. From there I'll be posting a follow-up with a new set of concepts, frequently expressed but not listed here.

It's interesting to actually compare your list with Tagalog (mine) and see there are similarities. Moreover, other languages in the Philippines are similar with some words in your list. After all, our languages hails from the same language family, the Austronesian languages.

Yeah, I saw your list and was quite surprised how much we share in common. I can even sort of guess what a word means without looking at it's meaning. Besides Indonesian, I guess Tagalog is a very close relative to Malay.

52) path/road slóð (f)/ stígur (n)/ vegur (n)
53) year ár (n)

All nouns in nominative singular.
There is no one word for tail in icelandic, I did not include lot of words with subtle differences in meaning for other words (it is f.ex. possible for wind and earth/soil) because these are the basic ones, but there is no one word for tail so that one is stuck with seven different words.

Verbs:
54) die deyja/drepast
55) see/look/watch sjá/horfa
56) hear heyra
57) know vita/kunna/þekkja
58) drink drekka
59) give gefa
60) come koma
61) stand standa
62) sit sitja
63) lie down leggjast
64) fly fljúga
65) eat borða/éta
66) bite bíta
67) burn brenna
68) kill drepa
69) say/tell/speak/talk segja/tala/ræða
70) laugh hlæja

Verbs are in the infinitive.

Adjectives:
71) new nýr
72) full fullur
73) good/well góður
74) long langur
75) red rauður
76) black svartur
77) white hvítur
78) green grænn
79) yellow gulur
80) small/little lítill/smár
81) big/large stór
82) wide víður/breiður
83) heavy þungur
84) old gamall
85) dry þurr

Adjectives are in the positive, nominative, singular, masculine, strong declension since that is the form used by dictionaries. Theoretically every adjective has 120 forms, but I think that in reality the number of different forms is around 30 - 40. (Table with every form for nýr: http://bin.arnastofnun.is/leit/?q=n%C3%BDr, this website can give you every form of every word with more than one form in Icelandic.)

Other:
86) I/me ég
87) you þú/þið
88) what/which/that hvað/það/sem/er
89) who/whom hver/sá/sem/er
90) one einn
91) two tveir
92) not ekki
93) this/these þessi
94) we/us við
95) all/every/everything/everyone allir/hver einasti

Everything in nominative and in singular and/or masculine where it makes sense. Except ekki, sem and er which do not decline at all, þið which is plural and I included just to make clear that we differentiate between the plural and the singular forms and hvað/það which is neuter so that #88 and #89 aren't the same. (Yes the neutral form of sá is það.)
This section kind of looks like there are more forms of these words in English, (I consider I and me the same word) which is not true but I decided to just have one form of every word. I also kind of consider #88 and #89 the same, I put the neuter form for #88 but in my mind there is bigger difference between what and that, than between what and who.

I wasn't sure how to deal with the personal pronouns, I saw that a lot of people put two forms for I and two forms for you even before we consider plural, but I could not do it for the pronouns and not for the nouns. And eight forms for every noun was a bit too much.

In general, giving the base form of nouns and verbs should suffice. For pronouns, demonstratives, and such, the different forms are a bit harder to predict, so I've been listing them all, as long as that wouldn't result in a totally ridiculous amount.

We want the lists to be consistent across languages, but that's obviously easier said than done. It looks like you've done a pretty good job to me. Thanks again!
