Venetian numbering rules

  • Numbers from zero to ten are specific words, namely xero [0], un [1] (feminine: una), [2], tre [3], quatro [4], zsinque [5], sie [6], sete [7], oto [8], nóve [9], and diéxe [10].
  • From eleven to sixteen, numbers are formed from the root of the digit followed by ten: óndexe [11], dódexe [12], trédexe [13], quatòrdexe [14], quìndexe [15], and sédexe [16]. From seventeen to nineteen, the order is reversed, as the unit is put directly after the ten: disete [17] (or dixisete), disdoto [18], and disnóve [19].
  • The tens have specific names based on the matching mutiplier digit root, except for ten and twenty: diéxe [10], vinti [20], trenta [30], quaranta [40], zsinquanta [50], sesanta [60], setanta [70], otanta [80], and novanta [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten and the unit with a dash sign (e.g.: vinti-un [21], trenta-dó [32], quaranta-oto [48]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word hundred by the multiplier digit, except for one hundred: zsento [100], doxento [200], trexento [300], quatroxento [400], zsinquezsento [500], siezsento [600], setezsento [700], otozsento [800], and novezsento [900].
  • Thousands are formed by putting the multiplier digit before the word thousand, separated with a space, except for one thousand: miłe [1,000] (plural miła), dó miła [2,000], tre miła [3,000], quatro miła [4,000], zsinque miła [5,000]…
  • Thousands, hundreds, tens and units are linked together with a dash sign (e.g.: zsento-nóve [109], doxento-trenta [230], novezsento-novanta-nóve [999], dó miła-trexento-vinti-oto [2,328]).
  • One million is un miłion (plural: miłiuni).
