  • Digits from one to nine are rendered by specific words preceded by the subject clitic mo: mo hese [1], mo dua [2], mo rolu [3], mo v̈ari [4], mo lim̈a [5], mo haion(o) [6], mo haip̈iru [7], mo haualu [8], and mo haisua [9].
  • Tens are formed starting by the clitic mo, then a short version of the word for ten (gavul instead of sagavul), followed by the multiplier digit, except for ten itself: mo sagavul [10], mo gavul dua [20], mo gavul rolu [30], mo gavul v̈ari [40], mo gavul lim̈a [50], mo gavul haion [60], mo gavul haip̈iru [70], mo gavul haualu [80], and mo gavul haisua [90].
  • The compound numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed stating the ten, then the unit linked with the word comana (e.g.: mo sagavul comana mo v̈ari [14], mo sagavul comana mo haisua [19]). From twenty-one to ninety-nine, the word comana disappears (e.g.: mo gavul v̈ari mo dua [42], mo gavul lim̈a mo rolu [53]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the expression for hundred (mo gavul sagavulu) followed by the multiplier digit without the mo clitic, except for one hundred itself: mo gavul sagavulu [100], mo gavul sagavulu dua [200], mo gavul sagavulu rolu [300], mo gavul sagavulu v̈ari [400], mo gavul sagavulu lim̈a [500], mo gavul sagavulu haion [600], mo gavul sagavulu haip̈iru [700], mo gavul sagavulu haualu [800], and mo gavul sagavulu haisua [900].
  • The expression for thousand is mo gavul sagavulu sagavulu, or litterally ten times one hundred.
