Carijona Counting Worksheet

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