The Veps language (vepsän), also known as Vepsian, belongs to the Uralic family, in the Finnic group. Mainly spoken by the Vepsians in the Russian Republic of Karelia (where it has the official status of minority language), but also in Vologda Oblast and in Ingria, it counts about 5,700 speakers.

Due to lack of data, this program can only count accurately up to 100 in Veps. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.

Veps numbering rules

  • Numbers from one to ten are specific words: üks’ [1], kaks’ [2], koume [3], nelli [4], viž [5], kuz’ [6], seiččeme [7], kahesa [8], ühesa [9], and kümne [10].
  • From eleven to nineteen, the numbers are formed from the matching digits, adding the -toštküme suffix at the end, which means from the second (ten): üks’toštkümne [11], kaks’toštküme [12], koumetoštküme [13], nellitoštküme [14], vižtoštküme [15], kuz’toštküme [16], seiččemetoštküme [17], kahesatoštküme [18], and ühesatoštküme [19].
  • The tens are formed by adding the -küme suffix (partitive case of kümne, ten) at the end of the matching multiplier digit, with the obvious exception of ten: kümne [10], kaks’küme [20], kuumeküme [30], nellküme [40], vižküme [50], kuzküme [60], seiččemeküme [70], kahesaküme [80], and ühesaküme [90].
  • Compound numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine are formed by saying the ten, then the digit separated with a space (e.g.: kaks’küme üks’ [21], vižküme nelli [54]).
  • One hundred is sada, and one thousand, tuha.
