Lingwa de planeta 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 specific words, namely nol [0], un [1], dwa [2], tri [3], char [4], pet [5], sit [6], sem [7], ot [8], and nin [9].
  • The tens are formed by prefixing the word for ten (shi) by its multiplier digit, except for ten itself: shi [10], dwashi [20], trishi [30], charshi [40], petshi [50], sitshi [60], semshi [70], otshi [80], and ninshi [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten to the unit with a hypen (e.g.: shi-un [11], dwashi-pet [25]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (sto) by its multiplier digit, except for one hundred: sto [100], dwasto [200], tristo [300], charsto [400], petsto [500], sitsto [600], semsto [700], otsto [800], and ninsto [900].
  • The word for thousand is mil and the word for million (106) is milion. These two words are written separately and are not linked with hyphens (e.g.: dwashi-pet mil charsto-semshi-tri [25,473], dwa milion petsto-trishi-sit mil ninsto-otshi-dwa [2,536,982]).
