Llanito, or Yanito, is a mixed language spoken in Gibraltar. It mixes vocabulary mainly from Andalusian Spanish and British English, using a lot of code-switching between those two languages, with loanwords from Arabic, Genoese, Haketia, Hebrew, Italian, Judaeo-Spanish, Maltese and Portuguese.

Due to lack of data, this program can only count accurately up to 20 in Llanito. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.
