  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: ноль (nol‘) [0] (literally, nothing), пĕрре (pĕrre) [1], иккĕ (ikkĕ) [2], виççĕ (vişşĕ) [3], тăваттă (tăvattă) [4], пиллĕк (pillĕk) [5], улттă (ulttă) [6], çиччĕ (şiccĕ) [7], саккăр (sakkăr) [8], and тăххăр (tăkckcăr) [9].
  • Tens from ten to seventy are rendered by specific words: вуннă (vunnă) [10], çирĕм (şirĕm) [20], вăтăр (vătăr) [30], хĕрĕх (kcĕrĕkc) [40], аллă (allă) [50], утмăл (utmăl) [60], and çитмĕль (şitmĕl‘) [70]. Eighty and ninety are formed on ten: сакăр вуннă (sakăr vunnă) [80] (8*10), тăхăр вуннă (tăkcăr vunnă) [90] (9*10).
  • Numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed starting with the root of the word for ten (вун (vun)), followed by the unit separated with a space, except for eleven (when compound, the unit one is replaced by its root, пĕр (pĕr)): вун пĕр (vun pĕr) [11], вун иккĕ (vun ikkĕ) [12], вун виççĕ (vun vişşĕ) [13], вун тăваттă (vun tăvattă) [14], вун пиллĕк (vun pillĕk) [15], вун улттă (vun ulttă) [16], вун çиччĕ (vun şiccĕ) [17], вун саккăр (vun sakkăr) [18], and вун тăххăр (vun tăkckcăr) [19].
  • Compound numbers from twenty to eighty are formed starting with the ten, followed by the unit separated with a space (e.g.: çирĕм тăххăр (şirĕm tăkckcăr) [29], аллă тăваттă (allă tăvattă) [54]).
  • Compound numbers based on eighty and ninety are formed stating the multiplier of the ten, followed by the number from eleven to nineteen, separated by a space (e.g.: сакăр вун виççĕ (sakăr vun vişşĕ) [83], тăхăр вун пиллĕк (tăkcăr vun pillĕk) [95]).
  • Numbers are shorten when they are followed by another digit. In these “short numbers”, the double consonant is dropped, and the sound itself becomes voiced (e.g.: виççĕ (vişşĕ) [3], виç çĕр (viş şĕr) [300], сакăр вуннă (sakăr vunnă) [80]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the short form of the multiplier, followed by the word for hundred (çĕр (şĕr)), except for one hundred: çĕр (şĕr) [100], ик çĕр (ik şĕr) [200], виç çĕр (viş şĕr) [300], тăватă çĕр (tăvată şĕr) [400], пилĕк çĕр (pilĕk şĕr) [500], ултă çĕр (ultă şĕr) [600], çичĕ çĕр (şicĕ şĕr) [700], сакăр çĕр (sakăr şĕr) [800], and тăхăр çĕр (tăkcăr şĕr) [900].
  • Thousands are formed starting with the short form of the multiplier, followed by the word for thousand (пин (pin)), except for one thousand: пин (pin) [1,000], ик пин (ik pin) [2,000], виç пин (viş pin) [3,000], тăватă пин (tăvată pin) [4,000], пилĕк пин (pilĕk pin) [5,000], ултă пин (ultă pin) [6,000], çичĕ пин (şicĕ pin) [7,000], сакăр пин (sakăr pin) [8,000], and тăхăр пин (tăkcăr pin) [9,000].
  • When compound, thousands and lower scale numbers are linked by the conjunction те (te) (e.g.: пин те тăхăр çĕр (pin te tăkcăr şĕr) [1,900], икĕ пин те çирĕм (ikĕ pin te şirĕm) [2,020]).
