A cladogram is a diagram representing a tree. This diagrammatic representation is frequently used in Biochemistry’ and Linguistics. Biochemistry’ uses DNA to construct the cladogram (shown BELOW). The branches of the cladogram are an evolutionary tree..
Swadesh proved that lexicons of all language in linguistics, obey the equation BELOW. This exponential decay constant ( λ , lambda ) is equal to 19% vocabulary decay per millennium.
This equation is called the Swadesh Glottochronology Formula.
