Counting in different languages.

Salam,

One of my passions is learning other languages since I was small. I started to love pick up some words whenever  I watch movies or dramas in other languages. I've learnt Arabic for 3 years when I studied in Arabic school, I've learnt Thai from one of my neighbours in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan, Hindi from watching too many Hindi movies (with the subtitles but after a while I can even understand without the subtitle), a little bit Spanish and Tagalog from watching soap operas from those countries.

When I was in NZ for 3 1/2 years, I've learnt some words in Maori too as the language share some similarities with Bahasa Melayu. I make sure at least I know some basic words that I can use daily. From time to time, I love to learn more languages as we wouldn't know when do we might need to use them.

So, in this entry, I would like to share how to count from 1- 10 in different languages:

No.
Arabic
Thai
Spanish
French
Maori
1
wahid
neng
uno
un
tahi
2
isnain
song
dos
deux
rua
3
salasah
sam
tres
trois
toru
4
arbaah
si'
qustro
quatre
wha
5
khomsah
ha
sinco
cinq
rima
6
sittah
hok
seis
si
ono
7
sab'aah
chet
seite
sept
whitu
8
samaniyah
pet
ocho
huit
waru
9
tis'aah
kau
nuev
neuf
iema
10
'asyarah
sip
diez
dix
tekau

Notice that Spanish and French share a lot of similarities. Even BM and Maori share some common words as the originality of both languages come from the same root. I know that those who are reading this entry have more knowledge in other languages as well. I would love to hear what are the languages that you know and maybe why you love to learn those languages.

If you ask me why do I love to learn different languages, my answer is simple. I love to hear the different pronunciations and also learn different grammatical rules. In short, my hubby is a scientist who loves to deal with bacterias but I love to dissect languages and do experiments using different languages.
