Besides things found across most if not all human languages (e.g. objects, actions), I occassionally find that another conlanger and I will share, with regards to certain types of languages, a concept at which I arrived by contemplation and trial (as opposed to research). I take these to arise from a mix of limits of the human brain, social conditioning, and generally supported assumptions.
