==Numeral system==
Komnzo number words use a [[senary]] numeral system, with the following numerals: ''nibo'' (6<sup>1</sup>), ''fta'' (6<sup>2</sup>), ''taruba'' (6<sup>3</sup>), ''damno'' (6<sup>4</sup>), ''wärämäkä'' (6<sup>5</sup>) and ''wi'' (6<sup>6</sup>). Counting in larger quantities is largely restricted to a ritualized counting ofprocedure, whereby [[Yam (vegetable)|yam]] tubers are counted publically for exchange feasts. For everyday counting above six, English numerals are borrowed.
