I don't know where the other Valdyan numbers come from (except the ones that are dual or plural forms of others) but _ran_ "five" is certainly derived from _rain_ "hand". Also the dual: _irain_ "(both) hands", _iran_ "ten". Irina Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastinay. (myself) (English) (Nederlands)
