This alphabetical list contains 77 English words that might cause confusion, and includes simple examples of usage to clarify the meanings of the various corresponding Yup'ik words. It is cautioned that for details of issues such as transitivity, a dictionary should be consulted. The Yup'ik words presented here are mostly of the Lower Kuskokwim dialect. (MSE)
