Sergei Stebnitsky explained his opinion in the following way: “...However, I give the group of the Nymylans in question the name “the Alyutor people” and call their dialect “Alyutorsky” (Alyutorian) in accordance with the name of one of the Alyutor villages, namely the village of Alut on the coast of Korf Bay. The contemporary village of Alut during the Nymylan-Luoravetlan (Koryak-Chukchi) and the Nymylan-Russian wars was one of the principal strongholds of the Alyutors, as unanimously evidenced by both the historical sources at our disposal and the legends of the Alyutors themselves”.
