Fakaalofa lahi atu –


Day four! Here are the numbers to study for today.

Nakai / 0 Nil / Zero 0
Taha One 1
Ua Two 2
Tolu Three 3
Fa Four 4
Lima Five 5
Ono Six 6
Fitu Seven 7
Valu Eight 8
Hiva Nine 9
Hogofulu Ten 10






  1. Some of those numbers are similar to Cebuano, a language in the Philippines. I wonder if they are related?

    • Hi, Mark –

      That’s interesting to see a connection with Niuean.
      The language, from what I’ve gathered, is related to Samoan and Tongan languages. This might mean that there are similarities with Cebuano as well.

      I hope you’re enjoying the start of my new Niuean blog; sorry I haven’t been adding lately!

  2. Input “aifai” in place of “nakai”

    • Hi, George –

      Thank you for your suggestion.
      I’ll change that.
