Nove Latina 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 zero [0], un [1], du [2], tri [3], quar [4], quin [5], six [6], sep [7], oc [8], and nev [9].
  • Tens are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for ten (dec) linked with a hyphen, except for ten itself: dec [10], du-dec [20], tri-dec [30], quar-dec [40], quin-dec [50], six-dec [60], sep-dec [70], oc-dec [80], and nev-dec [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, followed by the unit linked with a hyphen (e.g.: du-dec-sep [27], quin-dec-tri [53]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier, followed by the word for hundred (cent), linked with a hyphen, except for one hundred: cent [100], du-cent [200], tri-cent [300], quar-cent [400], quin-cent [500], six-cent [600], sep-cent [700], oc-cent [800], and nev-cent [900].
  • Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier, followed by the word for thousand (mil), linked with a hyphen, except for one thousand: mil [1,000], du-mil [2,000], tri-mil [3,000], quar-mil [4,000], quin-mil [5,000], six-mil [6,000], sep-mil [7,000], oc-mil [8,000], and nev-mil [9,000].
  • Big numbers in Nove Latina follow the short scale naming convention, where every new word greater than a million is one thousand times bigger than the previous term. Thus we have milion [million, 106], bilion [billion, 109], trilion [trillion, 1012]…
