Lingua Franca Nova numbering rules

  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: zero [0], un [1], du [2], tre [3], cuatro [4], sinco [5], ses [6], sete [7], oto [8], and nove [9].
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for ten (des), except for ten itself: des [10], dudes [20], tredes [30], cuatrodes [40], sincodes [50], sesdes [60], setedes [70], otodes [80], and novedes [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten and the unit with a hyphen (e.g.: cuatrodes-ses [46], sincodes-sete [57]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (sento) with the multiplier digit, except for one hundred itself: sento [100], dusento [200], tresento [300], cuatrosento [400], sincosento [500], sessento [600], setesento [700], otosento [800], and novesento [900].
  • Compound hundreds are formed by linking the hundred and the unit, or the hundred and the ten (and the unit) with a hyphen (e.g.: sento-un [101], tresento-dudes-un [321]).
  • 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], tre mil [3,000], cuatro mil [4,000], sinco mil [5,000]…
  • The word for million (106) is milion, then we have mil milion (billion, 109), milion milion (trillion, 1012), and mil milion milion (quadrillion, 1015).
