Other comments: Mali has a vigesimal system. The numbers 'one', 'two', 'three', 'four' and 'five' are simple numbers; as are the numbers 'ten', twenty', 'one hundred' and 'one thousand'. The number 'five' is formed on the stem for 'hand'. The number 'fifteen' is formed by adding two hands and one leg, while 'twenty' is the phrase 'a whole person'. The term for one hundred is ailɔtka, this stem means 'image' or 'picture'. The term for 'one thousand ' is based on the noun stem for 'head' aɹɛβuski. Other numbers are built up from these basic elements. Other 'tens' are built up from 'twenty'ː 'thirty' using the relator ma where multiple of twenty are requiredː  'forty' is 'two whole person, but the masculine dual noun class marker is optional in more complex numbers (sixty, seventy, eighty and ninety ). Nowadays, numbers up to 'ten' are used in everyday discourse but higher numbers are often replaces by Tok Pisin terms. Mali is spoken by about 5,000 speakers in east Gazelle peninsula, East New Britain province, Papua New Guinea.
