How do I say “three”? Let me count the ways.

Firstly, I apologize for the forced pun in the title. But now that I have your cringing attention, make sure to check out this article from Mental Floss on “12 Mind Blowing Number Systems From Other Languages.” It’s a neat little overview of some different and quite fascinating ways in which humans around the world go about counting things. What I like about the list is that, in addition to “exotic” languages (as the author calls them), it also includes French and Danish, proving that “weird” language features don’t just develop among small tribes in remote, tropical jungles.
