Lish (Lishpa) and Chug are a small dialect cluster of Arunachal Pradesh in India. They are closely related, though perhaps not close enough for mutual intelligibility.

Chug is spoken only in Chug village (population 483 in 1971), located a few miles from Dirang (Blench & Post 2011:3). The Lish (population 1,567 in 1981) live in Dirang village, a few miles away from Chug village, and in Gompatse.
