Other comments: Chinook or Lower Chinook (also known as Chinook-proper or Coastal Chinook is an extinct language formerly spoken in Oregon and Washington along the Columbia River by Chinook peoples. Although the last known native speaker of any Chinookan language died in 2012, the 2009-2013 American Community Survey found 270 self-identified speakers of Upper Chinook.

Chinookan family consisted of three languages with multiple varieties. There is some dispute over classification, and there are two ISO 639-3 codes assigned: chh (Chinook, Lower Chinook) and wac (Wasco-Wishram, Upper Chinook). For example, Ethnologue 15e classifies Kiksht as Lower Chinook, while others consider it instead Upper Chinook (discussion), and others a separate language. Chinook has only recorded traditional numerals from 1 to 10 years ago, not sure if they were used the traditional decimal counting system before, New data for numbers after ten is required.
