How many things? 1-12

 

Here we go back to the patterns we learned for counting things, 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 stays as -sga'q-, but will add the matching -l. The combination can also be said and written as -sqa'qal.
