Other comments: Bakairi counting system is very simple with only two word as number. Actually they do not use more than numbers one and two.

Note that the word for 1 is <tokalâ>, with a circumflex on the second a (<â> represents a schwa vowel [ə] in Bakairi); similarly, 2 is <azagâ>, also with an â (schwa) as the final vowel. I also agree with the lady who filled in your form.
