  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: nol [0], ven [1], dov [2], ter [3], far [4], kel [5], gab [6], yep [7], lok [8], and nif [9].
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with is (from dis, ten), except for ten itself: dis [10], dovis [20], teris [30], faris [40], kelis [50], gabis [60], yepis [70], lokis [80], and nifis [90].
  • Compound numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed prefixing the digit with the root di of the word for ten (dis): diven [11], didov [12], diter [13], difar [14], dikel [15], digab [16], diyep [17], dilok [18], and dinif [19].
  • Other compound numbers are formed by stating the ten, then the unit separated with a space (e.g.: faris ter [43], yepis nif [79]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (son) with no space, except for one hundred itself: son [100], dovson [200], terson [300], farson [400], kelson [500], gabson [600], yepson [700], lokson [800], and nifson [900].
  • The thousands are formed the same way, by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mel) with no space, except for one thousand itself: mel [1,000], dovmel [2,000], termel [3,000], farmel [4,000], kelmel [5,000], gabmel [6,000], yepmel [7,000], lokmel [8,000], and nifmel [9,000].
  • The word for million is mlon (106), and the word for billion is mlar (109). The Bolak language thus follows the long scale numbers rule to form big number names, in which every new term greater than one million is one million times the previous one.
