Later: Apparently both the Italian and Basque Wiktionary sites give "šestnaest"
as an alternate spelling. We still need a native speaker to explain the
actual situation. But what will we do if it turns out that there are two
acceptable variants? (Etymologically, the spelling with an extra t makes
sense -- the word is derived from a phrase meaning something like "six on
ten", "šest na deset", so that t is part of the word for "six".
