Ladin numbering rules

  • Numbers from zero to ten are specific words, namely zero [0], un (feminine una) [1], doi (feminine does) [2], trei [3], cater [4], cinch [5], sies [6], set [7], ot [8], nuef [9], and diesc [10].
  • From eleven to sixteen, numbers are formed from the root of the digit followed by ten: undesc [11], dodesc [12], tredesc [13], catordesc [14], chindesc [15], and seidesc [16]. From seventeen to nineteen, the order is reversed, as the unit is put directly after the ten: dejesset [17], dejedot [18], and dejenuef [19].
  • The tens have specific names based on the matching digit root except for ten and twenty: diesc [10], vint [20], trenta [30], caranta [40], cincanta [50], sessanta [60], setanta [70], otanta [80], and nonanta [90].
  • Compound numbers above twenty are formed by juxtaposing the ten, the coordinator e (and) when the digit name begins with a consonant, and the unit with no space, causing an apocope of the last vowel of the ten name (e.g.: vintun [21], vintedoi [22], trentecater [34], carantot [48]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (cent) with the multiplier digit without space, except for one hundred: cent [100], doicent [200], treicent [300], catercent [400], cinchcent [500], siesçent [600]… Hundreds, tens and units are linked together with the coordinating conjunction e with no space (e.g.: centenuef [109], doicentetrenta [230], nuefcentenonantenuef [999]).
  • Thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mile) with no space, except for one thousand: mile [1,000], doimile [2,000], treimile [3,000], catermile [4,000]… Thousands are linked with lower scales with the conjunction e causing an apocope of the word for thousand (e.g.: mileun [1,001], milecent [1,100], milecentediesc [1,110]).
  • One million (106) is un milion, and one US billion (109) is un miliard.
