Navajo

With the number one (1), is it more common to use łáá’íí or t’ááłá’í when counting? If someone could help me find out, it would be appreciated.

ádin[2] dį́į́’ hastą́ą́ ’ashdla’ łáá’íí

Notes

In Navajo, the alphabet goes a, b, ch, chʼ, d, dl, dz, e, g, gh, h, hw, i, j, k, kʼ, kw, ʼ (glottal stop), l, ł, m, n, o, s, sh, t, tʼ, tł, tłʼ, ts, tsʼ, w, y, z, zh. The letters á, ą, ą́, é, ę, ę́, í, į, į́, ó, ǫ, ǫ́, ń do not belong to the Navajo alphabet, but they are used in the orthography to show tone and nasalization. Long vowels are written double: aa, áa, aá, áá, etc. The letter x is considered a variant of h, used after s, ts, g, and z to avoid confusion with digraphs. It may also be used after sh and ch to avoid the potential confusion of an h following a digraph containing h.[1]

Notes

Sorted by LibreOffice: Zulu.

Wikipedia’s “List of numbers in various languages: Niger–Congo languages” gives “iqanda kunye kubili kuthathu kune kuhlanu isithupha isikhombisa isishiyagalombili isishiyagalolunye”.

Omniglot matches Wikipedia, except for 3. Wikipedia gives “kuthathu” and Omniglot gives “kutathu”.

Siyomnqoba Xolo, a native speaker of isiZulu, gives “0 -qanda, 1 -nye, 2 -bili, 3 -thathu, 4 -ne, 5 -hlanu, 6 -sthupha, 7 -skhombisa, 8 -shiyagalombili, 9 -shiyagalolunye, 10 -shumi”.[2] Alphabetical order is “2 -bili, 5 -hlanu, 4 -ne, 1 -nye, 0 -qanda, 9 -shiyagalolunye, 8 -shiyagalombili, 7 -skhombisa, 6 -sthupha, 3 -thathu”. In Zulu (isiZulu), numbers are attached to what they describe, so the numbers require prefixes rather than stand-alone words. For example, “There are two dogs and three boys” translates to “Kunezinja ezimbili nabafana abathathu“.[3] He agrees with Wikipedia’s spelling of “kuthathu”.[4]
