Counting in Ewokese

Language overview

Ewokese is a fictional language that belongs to the Star Wars universe. It is spoken by the Ewoks, natives of the forest moon of Endor. This language has been created by Ben Burtt, sound editor for the movie Return of the Jedi, and is based on the Tibetan language that sounded appealing and affectionate to him, with some utterances of Kalmyk, a Mongolic language.

Due to lack of data, we can only count accurately up to 10 in Ewokese. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.
