Notes on tones and traditional symbols: <v̀> is a falling tone. š = IPA [ʃ], c = IPA [ts], d = IPA [d͡z],  j = IPA[ d͡ʒ ], ny = IPA[ɲ], sʰ = ??? IPA [sʰ] or [ʃ]???.

From the new information from Prof. Suhnu Ram Sharma (2017). Rongpo is a Tibeto-Burman language spoken in Chamoli district in the state of Uttarakhand, India (North India). It has only six native numerals and all other numerals are borrowed from Indo-Aryan languages. Native Rongpo cardinal numerals are: /tig/  'one', /nhis/ 'two', /sum/ 'three', /pi/ 'four', /ŋa/ 'five', /gya/ 'hundred'. But if one wants write or say one hundred and one then the term /gya/ is not used. There they use Indo-Aryan terms like /ek sɔ ek/  only.
