Other comments: Geba Karen has a decimal system with special forms for 6 to 9. The data was based on Leiktho dialect. Geba numerals cannot be used isolatedly. They need to be combined with numeral classifies when they occur. The 'mɛ́' is the most common classifier used in counting, which means 'kind, sort'. The /θʊ̄/ in number 6 means 'pair' and six is formed by ' three pairs', eight is formed by 'four pairs', seven is formed by /three pairs and one (kinds)'. Geba Karen has three tones: v́ [55], v̄ [33] and v̀ [11], v is atonic.
