Samenvatting

The indigenous numerals of the AP languages, as well as the indigenous structures
for arithmetic operations are currently under pressure from Indonesian, and will
inevitably be replaced with Indonesian forms and structures. This chapter presents
a documentary record of the forms and patterns currently in use to express numerals and arithmetic operations in the Alor-Pantar languages. We describe the structure of cardinal, ordinal and distributive numerals, and how operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions are expressed.
