Other comments: Kathmandu Newari numerals are bound forms that occur prefixed to numeral classifiers. Free counting forms are rare in natural text in general. The pair '7' and '70' presents a problem. Many speakers maintain that '70' is somewhat longer than '7', but the Newari vowel system has no way to handle this, since [ɛː] is already long.
