When building a language for your world, words are "surprisingly" important. All natural language have words of some kind and only extremely experimental constructed languages lack them.
Word choice and categories are often difficult to create from scratch, so surely there must be a simpler way to create words?
Are there any lists that include words for lexicon creation?
To Cort’s notes, I am looking for a list containing a large amount of words, varying across all kinds of words, hence why the Swadesh list is insufficent
