Thank you for all the replies to my query regarding Ancient Hebrew and
Greek Swadesh lists.

related languages in his
1975 paper ‘Lexicostatistics and the Internal Divisions of Semitic’, in the
Semitica, edited by James and Theodora Bynon, Mouton (pp. 85-102)"
Israel Cohen listed a number of searchable online Hebrew and Greek sites
based on Strong’s
http://www.Crosswalk.com (or bible.crosswalk.com/Lexicons/Hebrew if you

http://www.eliyah.com/lexicon.html - searchable by Hebrew, Greek or English
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BPMaps/ - Phoenician body part terms inferred
Hermes and Aphrodite anthropomorphic maps at the BPMaps website
Dr Ghil`ad Zuckermann has compiled a Hebrew Swadesh 100 list
Of all these I would recommend http://www.eliyah.com/lexicon.html as the
