Digits and numbers from zero to sixteen are specific words, namely zéwo , yonn , dé , twa , kat , senk , sis , sèt , uit , nèf , dis , wonz , douz , trèz , katòz , tjenz , and sèz . Seventeen to nineteen are regular numbers, i.e. named after the ten and the digit: disèt [10+7], dizuit [10+8], diznèf [10+9].
The tens are specific words too from ten to sixty, namely dis , ven , trant , karant , senkant , and swasant .
From sixty to ninety-nine, the base 20 is used (this vigesimal system seems to be an inheritance from Celtic languages imported via the French language), hence swasanndis [60+10], swasanndiznèf [60+10+9], katrèven [4*20], katrèvendis [4*20+10].
Tens and units are put together (e.g.: karannsis ), unless the unit is a one. In that case, the word é (and) is inserted between tens and units, figuring an addition (e.g.: karantéen ). The compound numbers based on twenty cause the addition of an -n before the unit for twenty, and the replacement of the final -t with an -n from thirty to sixty, except when the unit is one in order to make the syllable longer (e.g.: venndé , tranntwa , karannsenk ).
Hundreds are formed by juxtaposing the unit to the word for hundred san, with the exception of one hundred itself: san , désan , twasan , katsan , sensan , sisan , sètsan , uisan , and nèfsan .
Hundreds composed with the unit one are linked with a dash, the other hundreds being directly attached to the following ten or unit (e.g.: san-en , twasan-en , sisankarant ).
One million is an milyon and one billion, an milya, the one unit being replaced here by the indefinite article an (a).
