Berom numbers

How to count in Berom (Cèn Bèrom), a Benue-Congo language spoken in the north of Plateau State in central Nigeria

Berom originally had a base-12 number system, however this has now been replaced by a decimal system. Numbers can take different prefixes depending on the class of the nouns they are attached to. For example, the base form for one is -ning; one man is mwat gwining, one child is hwey hining and one pot is rwey rining. Other prefixs are available.
