Numbers in Chamorro

How to count in Chamorro (Finu' Chamoru), a Malayo-Polynesian language spoken on the island of Guam and in the Northern Mariana Islands.

In Modern Chamorro numbers borrowed from Spanish are used. In Old Chamorro there were separate numbers for counting living things (LT), inanimate things (IT), long objects (LO) and for general counting (GC).
