Other comments: Levai /ləʔ˧˩wai˥/ ( Bangru) has a decimal system. Data taken from Roger Blench, "Mijic, the Miji and Bangru Languagesː Distribution, Dialects, Wordlist and Classification", Cambridge, 26 March, 2018.

Bangru has a simple tonal system, with two tones, High (H ˊ) and Low (L ˋ) with no glides. As noted above, they may correlate with final glottal stop in final syllable position. Nonetheless, the variation of tone in multi-syllabic words suggests we must recognise tone as a contrastive feature of the language.
