  • The only canon word for numbers is gein (g2n) [1]. The rest of the Dovahzul numbering system has been devised by the fans community.
  • Digits from zero to nine are specific words: nul (nul) [0], gein (g2n) [1], zein (z2n) [2], sed (sed) [3], hir (h7) [4], hen (hen) [5], sok (sok) [6], zos (zos) [7], eln (eln) [8], and nen (nen) [9].
  • The tens are formed by setting the multiplier before the word for ten (men, men), except for ten itself: men (men) [10], zein men (z2n men) [20], sed men (sed men) [30], hir men (h7 men) [40], hen men (hen men) [50], sok men (sok men) [60], zos men (zos men) [70], eln men (eln men) [80], and nen men (nen men) [90].
  • The compound numbers from eleven to nineteen are formed by stating the unit, the conjunction ahrk (4rk, and) shortened to ah (4) and the word for ten (men, men), with no space: geinahmen (g2n4men) [11], zeinahmen (z2n4men) [12], sedahmen (sed4men) [13], hirahmen (h74men) [14], henahmen (hen4men) [15], sokahmen (sok4men) [16], zosahmen (zos) [17], elnahmen (eln4men) [18], and nenahmen (nen4men) [19].
  • The compound numbers above twenty are formed by stating the unit, the conjunction ahrk (4rk, and) and the ten, separated with spaces (e.g.: gein ahrk sed men (g2n 4rk sed men) [31], hir ahrk eln men (h7 4rk eln men) [84]).
  • The hundreds are formed by stating the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (ben, ben) separated with a space, except for one hundred when not compound: ben (ben) [100], zein ben (z2n ben) [200], sed ben (sed ben) [300], hir ben (h7 ben) [400], hen ben (hen ben) [500]…
  • The thousands are formed by stating the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (ton, ton), separated with a space, except for one thousand when not compound: ton (ton) [1,000], zein ton (z2n ton) [2,000], sed ton (sed ton) [3,000], hir ton (h7 ton) [4,000], hen ton (hen ton) [5,000]…
  • Any compound number above one hundred is formed in the reverse order of the positional system used in English, i.e. the unit is stated first, then the ten, the hundred, the thousand… (e.g.: sok ahrk hir men ahrk zein ben (sok 4rk h7 men 4rk z2n ben) [246] (literaly “6 and 40 and 200”), nen ahrk zos men ahrk eln ben ahrk gein ton (nen 4rk zos men 4rk eln ben 4rk g2n ton) [1,879]).
  • The word for million (106) is unon (unon), and the word for billion (109) is unen (unen).
