Counting to One Hundred

 

Listen carefully to hear how the ending -sga'q gives you 10, 20, 30 and so on.

Notice that numbers 'six' through 'nine' can't combine directly with endings. Instead they use te's- after them as a stand-in. We will see this again and again in other patterns using numbers.
