Bowern abbreviations[edit]

The word-list abbreviations in Bowern are not explained, and there are at least three typos in the figures, making the paper hard to follow. The abbreviations are the same in Table 1 of the supplement and in Fig. 3, apart from XX-s-mj and the eight left out of Fig. 3. As best I can tell, the equivalences are:
