Romanid 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: zero [0], un [1], dos [2], tres [3], quatre [4], quinque [5], sex [6], septe [7], octe [8], and nove [9].
  • The tens are formed based on the matching digit root followed by the ending -enta, except for ten and twenty: dece [10], venti [20], trenta [30], quarenta [40], quinquenta [50], sexenta [60], septenta [70], octenta [80], and noventa [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, then the unit separated with a space (e.g.: venti tres [23], quinquenta septe [57]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for hundred (cent), separated with a space, except for one hundred: cent [100], dos cent [200], tres cent [300], quatre cent [400], quinque cent [500], sex cent [600], septe cent [700], octe cent [800], and nove cent [900].
  • Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for thousand (mil), separated with a space, except for one thousand: mil [1,000], dos mil [2,000], tres mil [3,000], quatre mil [4,000], quinque mil [5,000], sex mil [6,000], septe mil [7,000], octe mil [8,000], and nove mil [9,000].
  • The word for million is milion [106] (plural: miliones).
