Mayoruna Counting Worksheet

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