Lower Sorbian numbering rules

  • Digits from one to nine are rendered by specific words, namely jaden (m) / jadna (f) / jadno (n) [1], dwa (m) / dwě (f,n) [2], tśi [3], styri [4], pěś [5], šesć [6], sedym [7], wósym [8], and źewjeś [9].
  • Tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with źasća from twenty to forty, and by źaset from fifty to ninety, while no multiplier is needed for ten. Thus, we have źaseś [10], dwaźasća [20], tśiźasća [30], styrźasća [40], pěśźaset [50], šesćźaset [60], sedymźaset [70], wosymźaset [80], and źewjeśźaset [90].
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed starting with the unit, directly followed by nasćo: jadnasćo [11], dwanasćo [12], tśinasćo [13], styrnasćo [14], pěśnasćo [15], šesnasćo [16], sedymnasćo [17], wosymnasćo [18], and źewjeśnasćo [19].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the unit, followed by the conjonction a and the ten, with no space (e.g.: wósymadwaźasća [28], šesćapěśźaset [56]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier unit, then a form of the word for hundred (sto), with no space, except for one hundred: sto [100], dwěsćě [200], tśista [300], styrista [400], pěśstow [500], šesćstow [600], sedymstow [700], wosymstow [800], and źewjeśstow [900].
  • Compound hundreds are formed starting with the hundred, then the conjonction a, and the ten or the unit separated with spaces (e.g.: sto a jaden [101], dwěsćě a tśiasedymźaset [273]).
  • Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier unit, followed by the word for thousand (tysac), except for one thousand: tysac [1,000], dwa tysac [2,000], tśi tysac [3,000], styri tysac [4,000], pěś tysac [5,000], šesć tysac [6,000], sedym tysac [7,000], wósym tysac [8,000], and źewjeś tysac [9,000].
