Secoya Counting Worksheet

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