Other comments: Poumai Naga (also called as Poula) has a decimal system. The data given by Losii Heshu is not Poula (Poumai Naga), but the language is more like Mao Naga mixed with some Poumai speakers living close to Mao Naga speakers. In the past Poumai and Mao are known as one tribe. In the above data I can see affixes used before the root word, Native Poula speakers will not used affixes while counting the numerals. They used affixes when it come to sentences.

Poula has four tones: High ( ́), Rising ( ̌), Mid () and Low ( ̀). Data that are not marked with tone-diacritic indicate Mid tone.
