Other comments: Nisga’a (also Nass, Nisgha, Nisg̱a’a, Nishka, Niska, Nishga, Nisqa’a) is the root Sm'algya̱x language of northwestern British Columbia. Nisga'a people, however, dislike the term Tshimshianic as they feel that it gives precedence to Coast Tsimshian. Nisga’a is very closely related to Gitxsan. Indeed, many linguists regard Nisga’a and Gitksan as dialects of a single Nass–Gitksan language. The two are generally treated as distinct languages out of deference to the political separation of the two groups.  There are about 470 native speakers and 1,500 second language speakers in about 5,500 ethnic group. Nisga’a has a decimal system. Nisga’a has only recorded traditional numerals from 1 to 10 years ago, not sure if they were used the traditional decimal system or use English numbers now, New data for numbers after ten is required.
