Datapoint Juba Arabic/Ordinal numerals

In Juba Arabic 'first' and 'second' are expressed by means of Arabic frozen forms; both of them are suppletive: 'first' has a suppletive form wai 'one' vs. áwal 'first', tinín 'two' vs. táni 'second'. From 'three' onward an analytic construction is used.

Values

‘First’, ‘second’, or more are suppletive, the others are synchronically derived from cardinal numerals
