Counting Sheep in Basque
Araujo, Frank P.
Anthropological Linguistics, 17, 4, 139-145, Apr 75
Demonstrates the interplay of a cognitive system, the Basque numerative system, and a behavioral one, counting sheep. The significant features of the Basque numerative system are analyzed; then it is shown how use of these features facilitates the counting of sheep on open ranges by Basque sheep farmers in California.
