Other comments: Dimasa has a numeral system mixing with Tibeto-Burman numbers

and Indo-Aryan loanwords. The words 'bɪʃa' and 'ɾad͡ʒa' are loanwords from Indo-Aryan.

Note that the numerals 1-10 can occur in counting numerals with or without the numeral/ generic classifier prefix ma-. In 21-29, it is either the decimal system or the vigesimal system that are used in counting. The numeral prefix for twenty 'kʰòn-' is the decimal unit and the prefix 'bɪʃa-; is the vigesimal unit. I have heard people using 'dan-' for the decimal unit for 50. But I do not know its original meaning. I hardly use the Dimasa numerals after 20 being not exposed to those numerals since my childhood and the place I was brought up in sub-urban Haflong. I use the borrowed English numerals. So, I am really not aware of this 'dan-' prefix.
