Asturian numbering rules

  • Digits and numbers from zero to fifteen are specific words, namely ceru [0], un [1] (una in its feminine form), dos [2], tres [3], cuatro [4], cinco [5], seis [6], siete [7], ocho [8], nueve [9], diez [10], once [11], doce [12], trece [13], catorce [14], quince [15]. Sixteen to twenty-nine are regular numbers, i.e. named after the ten (or the twenty) and the digit. Diez y seis [10 and 6] is phonetically shortened with an apocope as deciséis. The same applies up to twenty-nine: decisiete [10 and 7], deciocho [10 and 8]… ventinueve [20 and 9].
  • The tens have specific names based on the multiplier digits roots except for ten and twenty: diez [10], venti [20], trenta [30], cuarenta [40], cincuenta [50], sesenta [60], setenta [70], ochenta [80] and noventa [90].
  • Tens and units are linked with y (and), as in trenta y un [31].
  • Hundreds are formed by removing the space between the multiplier and the hundred word: cien [100] (plural cientos), but doscientos [200], trescientos [300], cuatrocientos [400], quinientos [500], seiscientos [600], setecientos [700], ochocientos [800], and novecientos [900].
