Cuaiquer Counting Worksheet

Like many languages of South America, Cuaiquer does not have many number words-- really only four. It is possible to count to high numbers in Cuaiquer, but only by using long compound words combining the numbers one through four with the words for "hand," "more," and so on. Some Cuaiquer speakers have begun to use the less cumbersome numeral system of Spanish for numbers higher than four instead.
