Kalderash Romani numbering rules

  • Numbers from zero to ten are specific words, namely núla [0], jek (or jekh) [1], duj [2], trin [3], štar [4], panź [5], šov [6], jefta (or efta) [7], oxto [8], iňa [9], and deš [10].
  • From eleven to nineteen, numbers are formed with the word for ten (deš), followed by the letter u and the unit digit, with no space, with the exception of seventeen and nineteen, for which the letter u disappears: dešujek [11], dešuduj [12], dešutrin [13], dešuštar [14], dešupanź [15], dešušov [16], dešjefta [17], dešoxto [18], and dešuiňa [19].
  • The tens are specific words up to fifty, then they are formed by putting the multiplier unit, the word var (times) and the word for ten with no space above fifty: deš [10], biš [20], tranda (or trijanda) [30], saranda (or štarvardeš) [40], pinda (or panźvardeš) [50], šovardeš [60], jeftavardeš [70], oxtovardeš [80], and iňavardeš [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten and the unit with the word taj, separated with spaces (e.g.: biš taj jek [21], tranda taj duj [32], saranda taj panź [45]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (šêl, plural šêla) separated with a space, except for one hundred itself: šêl [100], duj šêla [200], trin šêla [300], štar šêla [400], panź šêla [500]…
  • The thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mija, plural miji) separated with a space, except for one thousand itself: mija [1,000], duj miji [2,000], trin miji [3,000], štar miji [4,000], panź miji [5,000]…
