Show Summary

The only numerals in the language are those for "one" and "two," and they have absolutely no word to express specifically any higher figures, but indulge in some such vague terms as "several," "many," "numerous," "innumerable," which seem to convey to their minds an approximate idea of the number intended.

In this case the elaboration of pronouns took place on the basis of organic tensions and failed to develop along the more abstract line because, in the absence of competition, commerce, and the multiplication of values, the mind was not activated along the line of calculation and enumeration.
