Other comments: Yakkaba or Yakkha only has three traditional numerals. For numbers above three, they use Nepali numerals.
Note: While the orthography employed here is based on IPA, some deviations have to be noted: following the common orthographic traditions found in descriptions of Tibeto-Burman languages, the symbol <y>is used for the palatal approximant (IPA: [j]), <c> is used for the alveolar fricative (IPA: [
t͡s]), and stands for its aspirated counterpart (IPA: [tsʰ]). Aspirated consonants are written <pʰ>, <tʰ>, <kʰ>, <wʰ>, <mʰ>, <nʰ>, <ŋʰ>. Geminated consonants are written with double letters, e.g. [mm] or [ss]. Yakkha has several prefixes that have the phonemic value of an unspecified nasal. The nasal assimilates to the place of articulation of the following consonant.
