Cashinahua Counting Worksheet

Like most Panoan languages, Cashinahua does not have many number words (really only two.) It is possible to count to high numbers in Cashinahua, but only by using long compound words combining the words for "one," "two," and "hand" (meken.) Today, most Cashinahua speakers use Spanish numerals to count higher than two.
