Mondial 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: cero [0], un [1], du [2], tri [3], cuar [4], cuin [5], sexe [6], septe [7], octe [8], and nove [9].
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit root with ante, except for ten: dece [10], duante [20], triante [30], cuarante [40], cuinante [50], sexante [60], septante [70], octante [80], and novante [90].
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed by suffixing the unit with ce, from dece, the word for ten: unce [11], duce [12], trice [13], cuarce [14], cuince [15], sexece [16], septece [17], octece [18], and novece [19].
  • Compound numbers from twenty-one to ninety-nine are formed with the ten root followed by the unit separated with a space (e.g.: septante un [71], novante cuar [94]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (cente) separated with a space, except for one hundred itself: cente [100], du cente [200], tri cente [300], cuar cente [400], cuin cente [500], sexe cente [600], septe cente [700], octe cente [800], and nove cente [900].
  • The thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mil) separated with a space, except for one thousand itself: mil [1,000], du mil [2,000], tri mil [3,000], cuar mil [4,000], cuin mil [5,000], sexe mil [6,000], septe mil [7,000], octe mil [8,000], and nove mil [9,000].
  • The word for million is milion (106), and the word for billion is miliarde (109).
