When used as adjectives, cardinals do not mark for grammatical number, as this is a lexical property of cardinals.
Ordinals are formed by adding the adjectivising suffix -ek to the cardinal. They behave as normal adjectives.
Adding the adjectivising suffix -l to a cardinal forms the sense single, double, triple, n-fold. Adding the adverbial suffix -wan to this forms the sense once, twice, thrice etc.
The denominator of a fraction is formed by compounding a cardinal with the noun ak, meaning part. By default, the numerator is 1. Otherwise, the denominator is put in the plural, and followed by a cardinal expressing the numerator.
