Greenlandic numbers

How to count in Greenlandic (Kalaallisut), an Eskimo-Aleut language spoken in Greenland and Denmark. The old Greenlandic numbers from 13 are shown here but are no longer used - Danish numbers are used instead (in brackets and italic).

Key to abbreviations: NG = Northern Greenlandic, SG = Southern Greenlandic, counting = used when counting 1, 2, 3 etc, time = used when telling time, obj = used when counting objects

If any of the numbers are links, you can hear a recording by clicking on them. If you can provide recordings, please contact me.
