Estonian numbering rules

  • Numbers from zero to ten are specific words: null [0], üks [1], kaks [2], kolm [3], neli [4], viis [5], kuus [6], seitse [7], kaheksa [8], üheksa [9], and kümme [10].
  • From eleven to nineteen, the numbers are formed from the matching digits, adding the suffix -teist at the end, which means from the second (ten): üksteist [11], kaksteist [12], kolmteist [13], neliteist [14], viisteist [15], kuusteist [16], seitseteist [17], kaheksateist [18], and üheksateist [19].
  • The tens are formed by adding the -kümmend suffix at the end of the digits, with the obvious exception of ten: kümme [10], kakskümmend [20], kolmkümmend [30], nelikümmend [40], viiskümmend [50], kuuskümmend [60], seitsekümmend [70], kaheksakümmend [80], and üheksakümmend [90]. When composed with a digit, numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine are formed by saying the ten, then the digit with a space (e.g.: kakskümmend kolm [23], kolmkümmend kaks [32]).
  • Hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier unit directly before the hundred word (sada), with the exception of one hundred itself: sada [100], kakssada [200], kolmsada [300], nelisada [400], viissada [500]…
  • Thousands are formed by setting the multiplier unit before the thousand word (tuhat), separated with a space, with the exception of one thousand itself: tuhat [1,000], kaks tuhat [2,000], kolm tuhat [3,000], neli tuhat [4,000], viis tuhat [5,000]…
  • The Estonian language uses the short scale for big numbers where every new word greater than a million is one thousand times bigger than the previous term. Thus, miljon is 106 (the US million), miljard is 109 (the US billion), and triljon (1012) worths a thousand US billions.
