Caquinte Counting Worksheet

Like most Arawakan languages, Caquinte did not normally use numerals higher than three. (In fact, the Caquinte word for "three," oshequi, literally just means "many.") Today, most Caquinte speakers use borrowed Spanish numbers (cuatro, cinco, etc.) to count higher than three.
