How many people? 1-12

 

Here we go back to the patterns we learned for counting people, bringing in the higher numbers we have now learned.

Pay special attention to te's- again being used with 6, 7, 8, 9, and the usual use of jel. Notice also that the ending you learned on its own as -sga'q comes out here as -sgeg-.
