1. Where can I find such lists systematically (that obviously help learning new vocabulary)? This Japanese-English example is from John McWhorter PhD Linguistics (Stanford)'s The Power of Babel (2003), pp. 226-227.

  2. Is there some compilation?

I don't specify which languages as I'm interested in too many. I fancy lists for L1-L2 like English-Japanese, where L2 are languages I fancy acquiring.
