Datapoint Fanakalo/Ordinal numerals

No clear study of this area has been conducted. My impression is that 'first' occurs as an item from English; subsequent ordinals may be expressed as number two, number three etc; these are derived from and differ from the ordinals two, three etc. which are based on English.

Values

'First' is suppletive, all other numerals are synchronically derived from cardinal numerals
