  1. Jantien,
    considering there are many unknown words in this chapter, I think it's a very good idea to do such a list, especially as you don't just translate the words but searched for English equivalents. Well done!

    One remark:
    It's either (to) govern - control/command
    or governed - controlLED/commandED
