Good Morning from the UK. I would like to post something a little different to following on from Kent's Ordinal Numbers in Various Languages post in Feb 2008. I am presently working on a book, which is essentially about a ancient sheep counting score (base 20) used throughout the North of Endland up until around the 1850s. It is not heard today.
It goes something like this
I have already done a lot of research on and off the web, but what really interests me is the similarities of these numbers to other languages across the world. It appears obvious to me that there is a mix of both cardinal and ordinal numbers here. Also any other comments would be appreciated.
