Plautdietsch numbering rules

  • Digits and numbers from zero to twelve are specific words: null [0], eent [1], twee [2], dree [3], vea [4], fiew [5], sas [6], säwen [7], acht [8], näajen [9], tieen [10], alf [11], and twalf [12].
  • From thirteen to nineteen, the numbers are formed from the matching digits root suffixed with the word for ten (tieen): drettieen [13], vieetieen [14], feftieen [15], sastieen [16], säwentieen [17], achttieen [18], and näajentieen [19].
  • The tens are formed by adding the suffix -tich at the end of the multiplier digit root form, with the exception of ten: tieen [10], twintich [20], dartich [30], vieetich [40], feftich [50], zastich [60], zäwentich [70], tachentich [80], and näajentich [90].
  • From twenty-one to ninety-nine, the tens and units are joined with the conjunction un (and), but the unit is placed before the ten (e.g.: eent un dartich [31], fiew un vieetich [45]).
  • Hundreds are formed by putting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (hundat), with no space, with the exception of one hundred itself: hundat [100], twee hundat [200], dree hundat [300], vea hundat [400], fiew hundat [500]…
  • Compound hundreds with numbers from one to twenty are formed by linking the hundred with the ten or unit with the conjunction un (and): hundat un twee [102], dree hundat un drettien [313]. From twenty to ninety-nine, the conjunction disappears: hundat een un twintich [121], dree hundat sas un feftich [356].
  • Thousands are formed by putting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (dusent), except for one thousand itself: dusent [1,000], twee dusent [2,000], dree dusent [3,000], vea dusent [4,000], fiew dusent [5,000]…
  • One million is eene Milliion
