Other comments: The Yukpa people use the hands to count, the basic system numeration is the pair, they not use the cardinal numbers. Beginning to count with the left hand and with little finger, later add other finger, when finish all firs hand's finger, use the other hand. The system is for example: one, two, three, four  (two pair), all hand (five), three pairs (six) … finish all hand (ten). When the number is more than ten, they use the word “[ˈsajmome]” (much or lot).
