Kuŋu Śāŋhtomāŋanitu Saukun

If Baranxtimans knew what Christianity was, and if they didn’t just borrow Christ as *Xristi [xəˈriːstɪ] or maybe the whole of Christmas as *No’el [ˈnoːʔəl] or *Vainaxten [ˈβɑɪ̯naxtən] or *Krismes [kəˈriːsməs], how would they wish you a Happy Christmas?

Kuŋu Śāŋhtomāŋanitu Saukun!

Happy birth of the one covered in blessed oil!

Proto-Aketamsei: Numerals

And because today marks my 50 clicks, a celebratory second post 😀 !

So, last time, we took a look at the numerals of Baranxe’i. I meant to include some diachronics, too, but I completely forgot, so here we go, the number 1 – 10 in Proto-Aketamsei (PA), Standard Baranxe’i (SB) and Standard Asuāneica (SA):

 

PA

 

SB

 

SA
