Ch'ol Maya Counting Worksheet

Ch'ol de Tabasco originally had a complex counting system that used different numbers to refer to different classes of nouns (two dogs would be cha'cojt, for example, but two balls would be cha'c'ojl.) Today, this counting system is rarely used-- instead the abstract suffix -p'ejl is generally used, as we have shown it below, no matter what type of object is being counted.
