Other comments: Kakkala has a decimal system. Kakkala (Kuḷupe:ccu dialect) is spoken in Malabar region of Kerala, India. Regarding Kakkala, so far we have not noticed any similarity with any other language in Kerala. In fact it remains a puzzle because lexical be items are very different and a large percentage of lexis has no cognates in other Dravidian languages. Morphologically it's affinities are with Tamil. 
Note: (1) Numerals from 9-90 have alternate forms with –j- being replaced by –cc-. E.g., 9 –tomma:ji /tomma:cci, 60 aɹupaɹuma:ji/ aɹupaɹuma:cci
