I wasn't advocating any one website over another, I just went to the first one that the search engine listed. Having received no reply to my main question I decided to search for lists of Japanese numbers. According to these four is the yon that you stated in your reply to my request on another page, rather than the yo that Yonin and Sannin suggests, with yo and n as two separate kanji (so a syllabic n?) but a different yo from that in Yonin! This leaves me even more confused; I could understand san/yo/Sannin/Yonin, or san/yon/Sannin/Yonnin, or even san/yon/Sanin/Yonin by elision. Any clarification is welcome.
