Nembe Numerals

by Timothus Ikoko-Okparan, Dede Awakj-Gam

This publication on Nembe Numerals has two target populations. One consists of leaners of Nembe Language to whom the systematic development of the Numerals may be useful. The other group of readers comprises mature speakers of Nembe who may see it as a useful reference volume. Since language is dynamic, the publication may also serve posterity in studying the metamorphosis of the Nembe counting system, with the period of this volume as a temporal reference point. The Nembe counting system might have been fundamentally based on the arrangement of the digits that makes up the human fingers and toes because these digits constitute the most handy calculating device available to anyone.
