Numbers in Mokilese

How to count in Mokilese (Mwoakilloa), a Micronesian language spoken mainly in Pohnpei state in Micronesia.

Numbers from 1-9 have different classifier suffixes attached to them depending on what is being counted. The -men classifier is used with animate nouns, such as people, animals and birds. The -pas classifier is used for long objects, such as canoes, stories, songs and roads. The -kij classifier is used for things that have parts or pieces, such as sheets of paper. The -w classifier is used for everything else.

Here are some examples: woal roahmen (two men), suhkoa rahpas (two trees), wija riahkij (two pieces of land), puk riaw (two books).

Abbreviations used: G = general (-w), A = animate (-men), L = long objects (-pas), P = partitive (-kij), S = serial numbers.
