Digits from one to nine are rendered by specific words, namely hngòoj  (or hngò, yàn when compound), wwìi , wàhnin , gàhan , ùhunj , wàtanj , txìj , tìnj , and hìn .
Tens follow a vigesimal system (base 20), using the word xxìyà for twenty in compound numbers from forty: txìh , kò , kò txìh  (20+10), wìj xxìyà  (2*20), wwìj xxìyà txìh  (2*20+10), wàhnìnj xxìyà  (3*20), wàhnìnj xxìyà txìh  (3*20+10), gàhanj xxìyà  (4*20), and gàhanj xxìyà txìh  (4*20+10).
Numbers from eleven to fifteen are formed from the word for ten (txìh) and the word for the unit: xàn , xùwìj , xàhnìnj , xìgàhanj , and xìnùnh . Sixteen to nineteen are formed based on the fifteen: xìnùnh yàn  (15+1), xìnùnh wwìj  (15+2), xìnùnh wàhnìnj  (15+3), and xìnùnh gàhanj  (15+4).
Compound numbers are formed setting the ten, then the unit separated with a space if the ten is a multiple of twenty (20, 40, 60, 80): kò gàhanj , gàhanj xxìyà wàhnìnj . They are formed setting the previous multiple of twenty then the number from eleven to nineteen separated with a space if the ten is not a multiple of twenty (30, 50, 70, 90): kò xìnùnh yàn  (20+16), wwìj xxìyà xìnùnh wàhnìnj  (2*20+18).
Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier digit followed by the word for hundred (syéntu), loanword from the Spanish ciento: hngò syéntu , wwìj syéntu , wàhnin syéntu , gàhan syéntu , ùhunj syéntu , wàtanj syéntu , txìj syéntu , tìnj syéntu , and hìn syéntu .
Thousands are formed starting with the multiplier digit followed by the word for thousand (mín), loanword from the Spanish mil: hngò mín [1,000], wwìj mín [2,000], wàhnin mín [3,000], gàhan mín [4,000], ùhunj mín [5,000], wàtanj mín [6,000], txìj mín [7,000], tìnj mín [8,000], and hìn mín [9,000].
When compound, each element of big numbers are linked with the verb taá, meaning being on top, in addition (e.g.: wwìj syéntu taá txìh , wàhnin mín taá ùhunj syéntu taá wàhnìnj xxìyà gàhanj [3,564]).
The word for million is mìxún [1,000,000], loanword from the Spanish millón.
