Like many South American languages, Amarakaeri does not have many number words-- really only three. It is possible to count to high numbers in Amarakaeri, but only by using long compound words combining the numbers one through four with the words for "hand," "more," and so on. In practice, most Amarakaeri people today use Spanish numerals to count higher than five.
