In Kankonian, the numbers zero up read ekht, in, bam, em, hol, kyu, sem,
treil, fur, hel, zan, zanin, zanbam . . . An ordinal number is formed by
adding -am to the end of the cardinal number. The word for first is "inam",
second is "bamam", third is "emam" and tenth is "zanam".
Look in the dictionary at the archived site for the meaning of "ekhtam".
