ŝāṯáyt - three (ML 380, Morris–Watson 2019:14)

Eastern (Dhofari) Mehri. Since post-consonantal ˁ is regularly lost in this Mehri variety, the Central (Eastern Yemeni) Mehri ŝaˁṯáyt is to be considered the direct avatar of the Dhofari ŝāṯáyt. Western (Qishn) Mehri is ŝaγatīt as elicited by A. Jahn (1905:74). W. Hein’s Western Mehri texts feature a number of other variants (Rubin 2018:296), among which ẑaγtīt is the most remarkable one.
