Crimean Tatar numbering rules

Now that you’ve had a gist of the most useful numbers, let’s move to the writing rules for the tens, the compound numbers, and why not the hundreds, the thousands and beyond (if possible).

  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific numbers, namely сыфыр (sıfır) [0], бир or быр (bir) [1], эки (eki) [2], учь (üç) [3], дёрт (dört) [4], беш (beş) [5], алты (altı) [6], еди or йеды (yedi) [7], секиз or секыз (sekiz) [8], and докъуз (doquz) [9].
  • Tens have specific names from ten to fifty, and names based on the multiplier digit root from sixty to ninety: он (on) [10], йигирми (yigirmi) [20], отуз (otuz) [30], къыркъ (qırq) [40], элли (elli) [50], алтмыш (altmış) [60], етмиш or йетмыш (yetmiş) [70], сексен (seksen) [80], and докъсан (doqsan) [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by stating the ten, then the unit separated with a space (e.g.: он секиз, on sekiz [18], йигирми дёрт, yigirmi dört [24]).
  • Hundreds are formed by stating the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (юз, yüz), separated with a space, except for one hundred: юз or йуз (yüz) [100], эки юз (eki yüz) [200], учь юз (üç yüz) [300], дёрт юз (dört yüz) [400], беш юз (beş yüz) [500], алты юз (altı yüz) [600], еди юз (yedi yüz) [700], секиз юз (sekiz yüz) [800], and докъуз юз (doquz yüz) [900].
  • Thousands are formed by stating the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (бинъ, biñ), separated with a space, except for one thousand: бинъ (biñ) [1,000], эки бинъ (eki biñ) [2,000], учь бинъ (üç biñ) [3,000], дёрт бинъ (dört biñ) [4,000], беш бинъ (beş biñ) [5,000], алты бинъ (altı biñ) [6,000], еди бинъ (yedi biñ) [7,000], секиз бинъ (sekiz biñ) [8,000], and докъуз бинъ (doquz biñ) [9,000].
  • The word for million is миллион (million), and the word for billion, миллиард (milliard).
