Description:(1) 12 nouns and numerals 1-10, most probably (Bergsland 1959b) taken by Pallas, perhaps from Dmitri Bragin at Irkutsk in March 1772 (2 or 3 items evidently from Glotov in J. L. S.), with remark that the language is different from Koryak, Kamchadal; (2) 9 nouns, 2 not in (1), and numerals 1-10, compared with Greenlandic and (Canadian) Eskimo; (3) English translation of (2).  Ainu cf. AL 772 P1777.
