List of Tchuktchi words collected in Glasenop Harbor Straits of Seniavine west side of Behring's Straits. The Yerigen words are those of the tribes being near the tents. The Chak-lock words are those of the inhabitants of the Island Chak-lock, about two miles to the southward. Those tribes are at peace and have constant communication with one another. Their customs, dress and appearance are the same as far as we could judge.
