Other comments: Tanapag or Northern Carolinian has a decimal system with several sets of classifiers which used with different nouns. Tanapag is a seriously endangered language with only ten speakers left. Now the young people below thirty do not speak Tanapag language any more and use English numeral system or Chamorro numeral system.
