Do differences between natural languages increase as time passes? An improved version of an extended Swadesh list of basic meanings has been developed to help answer this question by means of lexicostatistical analysis. The new instrument and the development process behind it will be of interest to researchers who study stability of meaning-word pairs and develop NLP methods for identification of cognates.
