Interslavic 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 words, namely: nula (нула) [0], jedin (једин)/jedna (једна)/jedno (једно) (masculine/feminine/neutral) [1], dva (два)/dvě (двє)/dvě (двє) (masculine/feminine/neutral) [2], tri (три) [3], četyri (четыри) [4], pet (пет) [5], šest (шест) [6], sedm (седм) [7], osm (осм) [8], and devet (девет) [9].
  • Tens are formed starting with the multiplier digit, directly followed by the word for ten (deset / десет), with no space, except for ten itself: deset (десет) [10], dvadeset (двадесет) [20], trideset (тридесет) [30], četyrideset (четыридесет) [40], petdeset (петдесет) [50], šestdeset (шестдесет) [60], sedmdeset (седмдесет) [70], osmdeset (осмдесет) [80], and devetdeset (деветдесет) [90].
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed starting with the unit, directly followed by the word (nadset / теенс), with no space: jedinnadset (јединнадсет) [11], dvanadset (дванадсет) [12], trinadset (тринадсет) [13], četyrinadset (четыринадсет) [14], petnadset (петнадсет) [15], šestnadset (шестнадсет) [16], sedmnadset (седмнадсет) [17], osmnadset (осмнадсет) [18], and devetnadset (деветнадсет) [19].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, followed by the unit digit, separated with a space (e.g.: petdeset šest (петдесет шест) [56], sedmdeset tri (седмдесет три) [73]). Ten and unit can also by linked with the conjunction i (и), meaning and (e.g.: petdeset i šest (петдесет и шест) [56], sedmdeset i tri (седмдесет и три) [73]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier digit, directly followed by the word for hundred (sto / сто), with no space, except for one hundred: sto (сто) [100], dvasto (двасто) [200], tristo (тристо) [300], četyristo (четыристо) [400], petsto (петсто) [500], šeststo (шестсто) [600], sedmsto (седмсто) [700], osmsto (осмсто) [800], and devetsto (деветсто) [900].
  • Hundreds can alternatively be formed by inflecting the word hundred (sto / сто): sto (сто) [100], dvěstě (двєстє) [200], trista (триста) [300], četyrista (четыриста) [400], petsot (петсот) [500], šestsot (шестсот) [600], sedmsot (седмсот) [700], osmsot (осмсот) [800], and devetsot (деветсот) [900].
  • Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for thousand (tyseč / тысеч), linked with a hyphen, except for one thousand: tyseč (тысеч) [1,000], dva-tyseč (два тысеч) [2,000], tri-tyseč (три тысеч) [3,000], četyri-tyseč (четыри тысеч) [4,000], pet-tyseč (пет тысеч) [5,000], šest-tyseč (шест тысеч) [6,000], sedm-tyseč (седм тысеч) [7,000], osm-tyseč (осм тысеч) [8,000], and devet-tyseč (девет тысеч) [9,000].
  • The word for million is milion (милион) [million, 106].
