Atruahi Counting Worksheet

Like most Cariban languages, Atruahi does not have many number words-- really only four (the words for "one," "two," "three," and "many.") It is possible to count to high numbers in Atruahi, but only by using long compound words combining the numbers one through three (so that "eight," for example, is takynynapa-takynynapa-typytyna.) In practice most Atruahi people today use Portuguese numerals to count higher than three.
