Counting in Mohegan-Pequot

Language overview

Forty-two in Mohegan-Pequot Mohegan-Pequot is an indigenous language of the Algonquian linguistic family. Parent of the Mohican, it is considered as extinct, whereas the Mohegan and Pequot tribes are actively revitalizing it in New England.

Due to lack of data, we can only count accurately up to 1,000 in Mohegan-Pequot. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.

Mohegan-Pequot numbering rules

  • Digits from one to nine are specific words, namely nuqut [1], nis [2], shwi [3], yáw [4], nupáw [5], qutôsk [6], nisôsk [7], shwôsk [8] and pásukokun [9].
  • The tens are based on the root of the digit names suffixed by uncák (meaning how many ten) from twenty to forty, and by the multiplier digit followed by -cahshuncák (also meaning how many ten, based on cáhshi or how many): páyaq [10], nisuncák [20], swuncák [30], yáwuncák [40], nupáw-cahshuncák [50], qutôsk-cahshuncák [60], nisôsk-cahshuncák [70], shwôsk-cahshuncák [80] and pásukokun-cahshuncák [90].
  • Compound numbers are made by linking the ten and the digit with the word napni (e.g.: páyaq napni nuqut [11], nupáw-cahshuncák napni shwi [53]).
  • One hundred is pásuq for counting animates (one hundred for inanimates is pásuqash). The hundreds are formed by putting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (pásuq) linked with a hyphen, except for one hundred itself: pásuq [100], nis-pásuq [200], shwi-pásuq [300], yáw-pásuq [400], nupáw-pásuq [500], qutôsk-pásuq [600], nisôsk-pásuq [700], shwôsk-pásuq [800], and pásukokun-pásuq [900].
  • One thousand is mitônak for animates and mitônash for inanimates.
