Intal numbering rules

  • Digits from one to nine are rendered by specific words: un [1], du [2], tri [3], kvar [4], kvin [5], siks [6], sep [7], ok [8], and nin [9].
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for ten (dek), except for ten itself: dek [10], dudek [20], tridek [30], kvardek [40], kvindek [50], siksdek [60], sepdek [70], okdek [80], and nindek [90].
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed by suffixing the word for ten (dek) with the unit: dekun [11], dekdu [12], dektri [13], dekkvar [14], dekkvin [15], deksiks [16], deksep [17], dekok [18], and deknin [19].
  • Compound numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine are formed with the ten followed by the unit separated with a space (e.g.: dudek un [21], siksdek kvar [64]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (sent) with no space, except for one hundred itself: sent [100], dusent [200], trisent [300], kvarsent [400], kvinsent [500], sikssent [600], sepsent [700], oksent [800], and ninsent [900].
  • The thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mil) separated with a space, except for one thousand itself: mil [1,000], du mil [2,000], tri mil [3,000], kvar mil [4,000], kvin mil [5,000], siks mil [6,000], sep mil [7,000], ok mil [8,000], and nin mil [9,000].
  • Large numbers names follow the long scale principle, in which each new term is one million times the previous one, alternating the ion and arde suffixes. Thus, we have milion (million, 106), milarde (billion, 109), and bilion (trillion, 1012).
