Meanings: Semantic Field Law
|LWT code||Meaning||Semantic category||Borrowed score||Age score||Simplicity score||Representation|
The Loanword Typology code is the identifier of the Loanword Typology meaning. Sorting by LWT Code sorts the words thematically by semantic field.
This column shows the labels of the Loanword Typology meanings. By clicking on a meaning label, you get more information about the meaning, as well as a list of all words that are counterparts of that meaning.
