Other comments: Aimol numeral system is similar to that of Chiru and other Chin languages. The numerals from eleven to nineteen are formed by a connective /-ləj-/ which is added to sòm “ten” to the basic numerals from one to nine. Here /ən/ of ənni,

əntʰum and are deleted. The numerals from twenty-one to twenty nine are formed by the same connective /-ləj/ which is added between sòmni “twenty” and the basic numerals from one to nine. Here /ə́n-/ of ə́nkʰə́t, ə́nni and ə́ntʰùm are also deleted. In Aimol /ré/ means hundred and /lisiŋ/ means thousand. There is no native term for lakh and crore. /lak/ means lakh and /koror/ means crore. In the ancient time crore is pronounced as /koti/. But the present generation did not use anymore. The symbol / v́ / indicate the low tone, / v̀ / the high tone and level tone is left unmarked.
