Votic numbering rules

  • Numbers from one to ten are specific words: ühs(i) [1], kahs(i) [2], ke̮m [3], nellä [4], vīsi [5], kūsi [6], seitsē [7], kahe̮sā [8], ühesǟ [9], and tšümmē [10].
  • From eleven to nineteen, the numbers are formed from the matching digits, adding the -te̮·šše̮me̮tta suffix at the end, which means from the second (ten): ühste̮·šše̮me̮tta [11], kahste̮·šše̮me̮tta [12], ke̮mte̮·šše̮me̮tta [13], nelläte̮·šše̮me̮tta [14], vīste̮·šše̮me̮tta [15], kūste̮·šše̮me̮tta [16], seitsēte̮·šše̮me̮tta [17], kahe̮sāte̮·šše̮me̮tta [18], and ühesǟte̮·šše̮me̮tta [19].
  • The tens are formed by adding the -tšümmettä suffix (partitive case of tšümmē, ten) at the end of the matching multiplier digit, with the obvious exception of ten: tšümmē [10], kahš́tš́ümmettä [20], ke̮mtšümmettä [30], nellätšümmettä [40], vīš́tš́ümmettä [50], kūš́tš́ümmettä [60], seitsētšümmettä [70], kahe̮sātšümmettä [80], and ühesǟtšümmettä [90].
  • When composed with a digit, numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine are formed by saying the ten, then the digit separated with a space (e.g.: kahš́tš́ümmettä kahe̮sā [28], nellätšümmettä nellä [44]).
  • Hundreds are formed by stating the multiplier unit before the word for hundred (sata, plural satā), with no space, except for one hundred itself: sata [100], kahsatā [200], ke̮msatā [300], nelläsatā [400], vīssatā [500], kūssatā [600], seitsēsatā [700], kahe̮sāsatā [800], and ühesǟsatā [900].
  • Thousands are formed by stating the multiplier unit before the word for thousand (tuhaD, plural tuhatta), with no space, except for one thousand itself: tuhaD [1,000], kahstuhatta [2,000], ke̮mtuhatta [3,000], nellätuhatta [4,000], vīstuhatta [5,000], kūstuhatta [6,000], seitsētuhatta [7,000], kahe̮sātuhatta [8,000], and ühesǟtuhatta [9,000].
