Comment: ille, illa, illud indicates distal deixis from the speaker. Iste, ista, istud is another 'that' word which indicates deixis relative to a second person near the speaker, but as the Swadesh meaning only differentiates meanings for 'this' (i.e. hic, haec, hoc /lexeme/20539/) and 'that' in deictic reference, I argue that ille is the more basic term to be retained in the list.
