Used in print (Your Federal Income Tax. 1962 Edition (Revised to...)( See Chapter 15 . ) (A.L. Kroeber, "Semantic Contribution of Lexicostatistic...)What we have left as reasonably comparable are four classes : ( 1 ) body_parts and products , which with a proportionally nearly even representation ( 51 terms out of 253 , 25 out of 100 ) come_out with nearly even ratios ; 2.6 and 2.7 ; ( 2 ) Nature ( 29 terms against 17 ) , ratios 3.3 versus 4.1 ; ( 3 ) adjectives ( 16 , 15 terms ) , ratios 3.9 versus 4.7 ; ( 4 ) verbs ( 9 , 22 terms ) , ratios 4.0 versus 3.4 . The totals for these five categories are not too uneven , namely 20 , 15 , 11 , 16 , 9 respectively . While the particular limits of these groupings may seem artificially arbitrary ; they do fairly express a corresponding grouping of more variable material , and they eventuate also in five classes , along a similar scale , containing approximately equal numbers of cases , namely 19 , 14 , 15 , 11 , 12 in Athabascan .
