Slovio 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: nul (нул) [0], din (дин) [1], dva (два) [2], tri (три) [3], cxtir (чтир) [4], piat (пиат) [5], sxes (шес) [6], siem (сием) [7], vos (вос) [8], and dev (дев) [9].
  • Tens are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for ten (des / дес), linked with a hyphen, except for ten itself: des (дес) [10], dva-des (двадес) [20], tri-des (тридес) [30], cxtir-des (чтирдес) [40], piat-des (пиатдес) [50], sxes-des (шесдес) [60], siem-des (сиемдес) [70], vos-des (восдес) [80], and dev-des (девдес) [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, followed by the unit digit, linked with a hyphen (e.g.: piat-des-vos (пиатдесвос) [58], vos-des-cxtir (восдесчтир) [84]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for hundred (sto / сто), linked with a hyphen, except for one hundred: sto (сто) [100], dva-sto (двасто) [200], tri-sto (тристо) [300], cxtir-sto (чтирсто) [400], piat-sto (пиатсто) [500], sxes-sto (шессто) [600], siem-sto (сиемсто) [700], vos-sto (воссто) [800], and dev-sto (девсто) [900].
  • Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier digit, followed by the word for thousand (tisicx / тисич), linked with a hyphen, except for one thousand: tisicx (тисич) [1,000], dva-tisicx (дватисич) [2,000], tri-tisicx (тритисич) [3,000], cxtir-tisicx (чтиртисич) [4,000], piat-tisicx (пиаттисич) [5,000], sxes-tisicx (шестисич) [6,000], siem-tisicx (сиемтисич) [7,000], vos-tisicx (востисич) [8,000], and dev-tisicx (девтисич) [9,000].
  • The word for million is milion [million, 106].
