Opened on:

     7.1 Longhand East Asian Counter Styles

     "Chinese, Japanese, and Korean have longhand counter styles, which 
have a structure similar to "one hundred thirteen thousand and 
twenty-three" in English. "

     This jarrs slightly, because in the numbering system in Japanese, 
for example, if you read out 113,023 it would involve a "ten-thousand" 
unit, so the 'structure' is not really similar. Maybe change to 
"thirteen thousand one hundred and twenty-three", and say 'have counter 
styles which have a longhand nature such as ... in English? Just an idea.
