Traditional numerals - Inuit and Welsh

For fans of the traditional Welsh vigesimal number system, with all its glorious dau ar bymtheg nonsense: I have just come across a post on Mastodon about the invention of modern Inuit numerals, which clearly show 17 as 15 + 2. Enjoy!


I love this, totally fascinating and makes complete sense! I never thought about it in terms of fingers AND toes before.
Hasn’t Welsh also been linked to the Icelandic language? So many connections, one you start looking…
