Trigedasleng 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 one to nine are: won [1], tu [2], thri [3], fou [4], fai [5], sis [6], sen [7], eit [8], and nain [9].
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are: len [11], twel [12], thotin [13], fotin [14], fitin [15], sistin [16], sentin [17], eitin [18], and naitin [19].
  • As the other numbers, the tens are derived from the English tens: ten [10], tweni [20], thodi [30], fodi [40], fidi [50], sisti [60], sendi [70], eidi [80], and naidi [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed like in English by stating the ten, then the unit, but separated with a space (e.g.: tweni won [21], thodi fai [35]).
  • The word for hundred is honet (won honet is one hundred). Compound hundreds are formed by stating the hundred, the coordination en (from and), then either the ten and the unit, or directly the unit (e.g.: sen honet en thri [703], eit honet en sisti sen [867]).
  • The scale numbers honet (hundred, 102), thauz (thousand, 103), miyon (million, 106) and biyon (billion, 109) are always singular. A comma may or may not be used to separate the thousands and the hundreds, the millions and the thousands (e.g.: tu thauz, fai honet en tweni won [2,521], tu miyon, thri honet en fodi fai thauz, sen honet [2,345,700]).
