Santa Ana Yareni Zapotec numbering rules

  • Digits from one to nine are specific words: ttubi [1], chupa [2], tsunna [3], ttapa [4], gayu [5], xxupa [6], gasi [7], xxunu [8], and jaa [9].
  • Numbers from ten to nineteen are specific words too: tsii [10], sinea [11], tsi’inu [12], si’intse [13], sitá [14], tsinu [15], sixupa [16], tsini [17], sixunu [18], and chennia [19]. We can however recognize in some of them the word for ten (tsii) followed by the unit (e.g.: sixunu [18] is a contraction of tsii [10] and xxunu [8]).
  • The word for twenty is galhia. Numbers from twenty-one to twenty-nine are formed by adding the suffix -erua to the digit root: ttuerua [21], chuperua [22], tsunnerua [23], ttaperua [24], gayuerua [25], xxuperua [26], gasierua [27], xxunuerua [28], and jaerua [29].
  • Santa Ana Yareni Zapotec partially uses the vigesimal system, where some tens (namely seventy and ninety) are formed by adding ten to the previous one: tsii [10], galhia [20], rerua [30], chua [40], tsieyona [50], gayuna [60], gayuna bixxi tsii [70] (60 + 10), tta [80], and tta bixxi tsii [90] (80 + 10). Etymologically, we can note that the word for eighty (tta) is the root of the digit four (ttapa), which could mean that it is a contraction of four times twenty, the same being observed with forty (chua), contraction of two times twenty.
  • Regular compound numbers from thirty-one to sixty-nine, and from eighty-one to eighty-nine, are formed by saying the ten, then the word bixxi (and/plus), and the digit (e.g.: rerua bixxi chupa [32], gayuna bixxi xxupa [66]). The digit one, when compound, is shortened from ttubi to ttu (e.g.: tsieyona bixxi ttu [51]). Seventies and nineties are formed by adding the words for eleven to nineteen to the previous ten (e.g.: gayuna bixxi sinea [71], tta bixxi sixunu [98]).
  • Hundreds are formed by saying the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (gayua): ttu gayua [100] (note the use of the short one, ttu), chupa gayua [200], tsunna gayua [300]… We can note here again the vigesimal system in use: as gayua is formed on gayu (five), it can be read as the contraction of five times twenty.
