Mondlango 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 names: zero [0], un [1], bi [2], tri [3], kwar [4], kwin [5], siks [6], sep [7], ok [8], and nef [9].
  • The tens are formed by starting with the name of the multiplier digit, followed by the word for ten (dek) without space, except for ten itself: dek [10], bidek [20], tridek [30], kwardek [40], kwindek [50], siksdek [60], sepdek [70], okdek [80], and nefdek [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten and the unit with a hyphen (e.g.: dek-kwin [15], kwardek-bi [42]).
  • Hundreds are formed by starting with the name of the multiplier digit, followed by the word for hundred (cent) without space, except for one hundred: cent [100], bicent [200], tricent [300], kwarcent [400], kwincent [500], sikscent [600], sepcent [700], okcent [800], and nefcent [900].
  • Thousands are formed by starting with the name of the multiplier digit, followed by the word for thousand (mil) linked with a hyphen, except for one thousand: mil [1,000], bimil [2,000], trimil [3,000], kwarmil [4,000], kwinmil [5,000], siksmil [6,000], sepmil [7,000], okmil [8,000], and nefmil [9,000].
  • One million (106) is miliono, and one billion (109), biliono.
