Panglobish 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 one are rendered by specific words, namely zero [0], un [1], due [2], tri [3], for [4], faive [5], sixe [6], seven [7], eite [8], and nain [9].
  • Tens are formed starting with the multiplier unit, followed by the word for ten (ten) separated with a space: (un) ten [10], due ten [20], tri ten [30], for ten [40], faive ten [50], sixe ten [60], seven ten [70], eite ten [80], and nain ten [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, followed by the unit separated with a space (e.g.: tri ten eite [38], faive ten faive [55]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier unit, followed by the word for hundred (hunde) separated with a space: hunde [100], due hunde [200], tri hunde [300], for hunde [400], faive hunde [500], sixe hunde [600], seven hunde [700], eite hunde [800], and nain hunde [900].
  • Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier unit, followed by the word for thousand (tauzen) separated with a space: tauzen [1,000], due tauzen [2,000], tri tauzen [3,000], for tauzen [4,000], faive tauzen [5,000], sixe tauzen [6,000], seven tauzen [7,000], eite tauzen [8,000], and nain tauzen [9,000].
  • If the word for million is milion [million, 106], bigger numbers are formed on the prefixes of the International System of Units: giga or tauzen milion [billion, 109], tera [trillion, 1012], peta [quadrillion, 1015], eksa [quintillion, 1018], zeta [sextillion, 1021], yota [septillion, 1024]…
