Other comments: Hrangkhol numeral system is very interesting as it can be seen from the above table. It has two numeral classifiers: in- which occurs with ‘1-3’ and ki- occurs with ‘6’ and ‘7’. The counting system of Hrangkhol is equally noteworthy. For instance, in the counting from eleven to nineteen, -lei- is the multiplicative digit to represent ‘one’ while -kʰat is the additive digit to represent ‘one’ which means that -kʰat ‘one’ is not reduplicated in the counting system to represent multiplication as in som-lei-kʰat ‘eleven(10x1+1)’ and som-n̥i in-kʰat ‘twenty one (10x2+1)’.

The Hrangkhol language is spoken in Zion village, Dima Hasao, Assam, India.
