Guarani numbering rules

  • Digits from zero to one are rendered by specific words: mba’eve [0], peteĩ [1], mokõi [2], mbohapy [3], irundy [4], po (which also means hand) [5], poteĩ [6], pokõi [7], poapy [8], and porundy [9].
  • Tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for ten (pa) with no space, except for ten itself: pa [10], mokõipa [20], mbohapypa [30], irundypa [40], popa [50], poteĩpa [60], pokõipa [70], poapypa [80], and porundypa [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, then the unit with no space for the teens, and separated with a space from twenty-one to ninety-nine (e.g.: papoteĩ [16], mokõipa pokõi [27]).
  • Hundreds are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for hundred (sa) with no space, except for one hundred: sa [100], mokõisa [200], mbohapysa [300], irundysa [400], posa [500], poteĩsa [600], pokõisa [700], poapysa [800], and porundysa [900].
  • Thousands are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for thousand (su) with no space, except for one thousand: su [1,000], mokõisu [2,000], mbohapysu [3,000], irundysu [4,000], posu [5,000], poteĩsu [6,000], pokõisu [7,000], poapysu [8,000], and porundysu [9,000].
  • The word for million is sua. Millions are formed regularly like hundreds and thousands, suffixing the multiplier digit with the word for million: sua [1,000,000], mokõisua [2,000,000], mbohapysua [3,000,000]…
