Koasati numbering rules

  • Numbers from zero to nine are specific words, namely ikson [0] (meaning none), chaffaakan [1], toklon [2], totchiinan [3], ostaakan [4], chahappaakan [5], hannaalin [6], ontoklon [7], ontotchiinan [8], and chakkaalin [9].
  • Tens are formed by prefixing the multiplier digit with pol-, except for ten: pokkoolin [10], poltoklon [20], poltotchiinan [30], polostaakan [40], polchahappaakan [50], polahannaalin [60], polontoklon [70], polontotchiinan [80], and polchakkaalin [90].
  • In compound numerals, the ten is put first, then the word awah, and the digit. In numbers from eleven to nineteen, the word for ten (pokkoolin) is contracted to pokkol (e.g.: pokkol awah chaffaakan [11], pokkol awah chahappaakan [15]). For other compound numerals, the word polo is added in between the word for the ten and the word awah (eg.: poltoklon polo awah chaffaakan [21]).
  • Hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit after the word for hundred (chokpi): chokpi chaffaakan [100], chokpi toklon [200], chokpi totchiinan [300], chokpi ostaakan [400]…
  • Thousands are formed by setting the multiplier after the word for thousand (chokpachoba): chokpachoba chaffaakan [1,000], chokpachoba toklon [2,000], chokpachoba totchiinan [3,000], chokpachoba ostaakan [4,000]…
