Other comments: Dakpa has both a vigesimal system and a decimal system. For the numerals 'one thousand' and 'two thousand' note the two different variants. The 'toŋ' numerals only occur for these two numerals and are not productive for higher multiples beyond 'two thousand' according to the consultant who worked with the Dzala field methods course.

The Dakpa data is not my own but from the van Driem reference I give at the end of the data. In his article with this data he gives no explanation of the orthography he uses. Dakpa reference: van Driem, George. 2007. Dzala and Dakpa form a coherent subgroup within East Bodish, and some related thoughts. In Linguistics of the Himalayas and Beyond, eds.
