Other comments: Blimaw Karen has a decimal numeral system. Blimaw is a dialect closely related to the Mobwa (Mopwa, Palaychi) group” Shintani Foreword]. Only one village in the Thandaung area (Karen State, Myanmar). No village name.

plo¹¹ and kʰa¹¹ are classifiers. It is interesting to note that multiples of 100 and 1,000 retain the numeral ‘one’ e.g. 200 =2 x one-hundred, unlike other Karen languages.
