There is the "Universal Language Dictionary", (posted here the other day, or
Google for it; also linked on langmaker) which is a list of things a

For conlanging in general it may have to be a different kind of list, to allow
for things like cultural variation (prime ministers, computers, etc., don't need
to be expressed by all conlangs).
