Lui (lba-lba) = 10 (Extinct).

E16/E17/E18/E19 lists Lui [lba] as an unclassified Tibeto-Burman language of Myanmar (E16/E17/E18/E19, 200 speakers) or of India (E16/E17/E18/E19, extinct) without giving a location. Lui is a derogatory term meaning 'serf' and has been applied to several different languages ( McCulloch, W. 1859 , Luce, Gordon H. 1985: 36-46 ). Without a more precise denotation, such an entry is spurious.
