* Different form

Note:
The suffixes "pe" and "p" are used to count general objects. This is similar to the number system of Ancient Japanese.

ex.
32 objects = tup ikasma wanpe etu hotnep
32 people = tun ikasma waniw etu hotnen
32 dogs = tu seta ikasma wan seta etu hotne seta

The first "pe" in "tupesanpe" and "sinepesanpe" cannot be replaced.

39 dogs = sinepesan seta ikasma wan seta etu hotne seta
