Like most Arawakan languages, Piapoco does not have many number words-- really only four. It is possible to count to high numbers in Piapoco, but only by using long compound words combining the numbers one through four with the word for "hand" (wakaapi) in various ways. Most Piapoco people today use Spanish numerals to count higher than four.
