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.
