Sayula Popoluca numbers

How to count in Sayula Popoluca (yamay ajw), a Mixe language spoken in the southern Veracruz in southeastern Mexico. These numbers were documented by Dr. Eustorijo Calderón in 1892. By the 1960s only a few elderly speakers of Sayula Populuca could remember them, and today Spanish numbers are used.

If any of the numbers are links, you can hear a recording by clicking on them. If you can provide recordings, please contact me.
