  • *) pä is the only form used in compound numerals. Cf. ’20, 200’.
  • **) -ni in compound numerals (11-19 and subsequent multiples of ten, 21-29, etc.) has the meaning of ‘with, and’. e.g. tunca mayani ‘11’ (’10 with 1’): may also be contracted to tunca mayni. tunca payani ‘12’: may also be contracted to tunca payni.
