Greenlandic (Kalaallisut) is the main language of Greenland.
In Greenland only 1-12 in Greenlandic are used. This is caused by a system of numerals used in the past where the toes and fingers were used to count to 20 which would be inuk naallugu or a complete human. 79 would be four complete humans minus one.
(Southern Greenlandic) qulaaluat (kwul-AA-loo-at)
(Northern Greenlandic) isikkaneq (counting/time), isikkanillit (objects) (ISI-kan-ek, isi-kan-EEL-lit)
(North Greenlandic) isikkaneq marluk (ISI-kan-ek MAR-look)
The numerals after 12 are Danish now but 13-20 in old Greenlandic are underneath as well as 100 and 1000:
Numbers over 12th are Danish loan-numerals such as tretteniat is 13th and tyviat is 20th.
