Rohingya numbering rules

  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: sifir [0], ek [1], dui [2], tin [3], sair [4], fañs [5], [6], háñt [7], añctho [8], and no [9].
  • Tens are quite irregular and not related to the multiplier digits: doc [10], kuri [20], tiríc [30], calic [40], fonjaic [50], áit [60], óttoir [70], ací [80], and nobboi [90].
  • Teens are also irregular, even though we can sometimes recognize the root of the unit: egaro [11], baró [12], teró [13], soiddó [14], fundóroh [15], cúlloh [16], háñtaroh [17], añçároh [18], and unnúic [19].
  • Hundreds are formed by stating the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (cót) linked with a hyphen: ek-cót [100], dui-cót [200], tin-cót [300], sair-cót [400], fañs-cót [500], só-cót [600], háñt-cót [700], añctho-cót [800], and no-cót [900].
  • When compound, the hundreds loose their final -t and a space is added beetween the hundred multiplier and the word for hundred (cót), except for one hundred that looses its hyphen (e.g.: ekcó ek [101], fañs có tiríc sair [534]).
  • Thousands are formed by stating the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (házar) separated with a space: ek házar [1,000], dui házar [2,000], tin házar [3,000], sair házar [4,000], fañs házar [5,000], só házar [6,000], háñt házar [7,000], añctho házar [8,000], and no házar [9,000].
  • Rohingya uses the Indian counting system, or more exactly the counting system of the Indian subcontinent, that groups the decimals by three up to one thousand, and by two beyond. This notation comes from the Vedic Numeration System. The Rohingya large numbers are:
    • ek-lák: 1,00,000 (one hundred thousand, or 105);
    • doc-lák: 10,00,000 (one million, or 106);
    • ek-kutí: 1,00,00,000 (ten million, or 107);
    • doc-kutí: 10,00,00,000 (one hundred million, or 108);
    • ek-kurul: 1,00,00,00,000 (one billion, or 109);
