*) Note that the singular article ep preceding mar ‘hundred’ has changed to the plural inanimate article toh, and that the ligature in joins ep bónót and toh mar. Commonly the loan word tausen is used, rather than counting the hundreds by tens. It is not uncommon for counting to be done in English or Pidgin.
