You will be quizzed! No, seriously. We hope that one through
ten will become fairly easy to some of our readers.
Mr. Levy came up with some interesting material while researching this.
Okrand, Mason and Arroyo de la Cuesta are the sources Levy used to uncover eleven and twelve. One through ten are fairly well established on Okrand and Mason. However, numbers over ten took some doing.
As it turns out, the direct translation of numbers over 10 is thus: "one it-comes-out" for instance, is eleven. 12 is " ten two it-comes-out". Thirty would be three tens ; and 87 would
be "taytmin tanat takichi 'ak 'ichchos" - "eight tens seven it-comes-out".
