Yucatec Maya Counting Worksheet (Mayan)

When they are used in a sentence, Mayan numbers take different forms depending on whether they are referring to objects, animals, people, etc. For example, "one butterfly" is huntul pepem, but "one rock" is hump'el tuunich. The forms given on this page are the "counting" form, such as a child would give if you asked him or her to count to five.

The full Yucatec Mayan number system is rarely used anymore except for historical purposes. For numbers higher than 5, most Yucatec Maya people use words that have been borrowed from Spanish (i.e. ses, six, from Spanish seis.)
