  1. 81 – can also mean “another” and is most commonly used in that sense.
    82 – can also be used as in giving a hand in some work. I’ve never heard it used as hand unless they want to beat you or want you to show what’s in your hand.
    87 – beach may be a better pronounciation for it. They sound the same actually.
    89 – can also be used to mean elder.
    90 – mostly used in letters. It’s used in place of “To” on the envelope.
