Other comments: Seri (Cmiique Iitom) or Comcáac, Comcáackg, Komkak is spoken by 720 speakers in 2 coastal villages in Sonora state, Mexico. Seri has a decimal system with special substructure for numbers six to nine. The word six is "one, alone" preceded by the word "its chest". Seven is the word " be with " preceded by tom (from kooitom) five and kox (from kookx) --- two with five. Eight has the root for four in it--- it looks like a plural form. Nine is something (no synchronic meaning) related to "ten". Like almost ten, or.... The above chart are the modern forms _ not the somewhat archaic '' interjection'' forms that were formerly used for counting. They have only begun to borrow Spanish terms ---especially when the numbers are big. Like 2000 would be either "mil kiʔ ko:kx" or even "dos mil". Kids may even use only Spanish numbers, but the system is pretty intact among adults. (Prices of baskets and all make the use of large numbers unwieldy --- especially since no one besides them understands them).
