Dear Samira,

Time ordinals for days and years are very elaborate in Kiranti and
Rgyalrongic languages, with terms for up to four days before and six
days after the day of reference. See the following article "Suffix-runs and
counters in Kiranti time-ordinals" by Boyd Michailovsky:

3 (cnrs.fr) <https://lacito.cnrs.fr/documents/publi/KIRANTI_TIME.pdf>

I discuss the paradigms of time ordinals in Japhug on pp. 281-287 of my
Japhug grammar A grammar of Japhug | Language Science Press
