Other comments: The Kawesqar numeral system is very simple. There are only three numbers, from one to three, and after 3 they use "many". If they need to number more items they use Spanish numbers adapted to Kawesqar phonetics. Well the numbers are: one=takso; two=woks ; three=wokstou (i.e. woks = two + tou = another one).

Spanish numbers are adapted to Kawesqar phonology, and morphological changes. Thus Four, "cuatro" in Spanish, becomes kuatero.
