  • Numbers from zero to ten are specific words, namely zero [0], un (feminine une) [1], doi (feminine dôs) [2], trê [3], cuatri [4], cinc [5], sîs [6], siet [7], vot [8], nûf [9], and dîs [10].
  • From eleven to sixteen, numbers are formed from the root of the digit followed by ten: undis [11], dodis [12], tredis [13], cutuardis [14], cuindis [15], and sedis [16]. From seventeen to nineteen, the order is reversed, as the unit is put directly after the ten: disesiet [17], disevot [18], and disenûf [19].
  • The tens have specific names based on the matching multiplier digit root, except for ten and twenty: dîs [10], vincj [20], trente [30], cuarante [40], cincuante [50], sessante [60], setante [70], otante [80], and novante [90].
  • Compound numbers above twenty are formed by juxtaposing the ten, the coordinator e (and), and the unit with no space, causing an apocope of the last vowel of the ten name (e.g.: vincjeun [21], trentedoi [32], cuarantevot [48]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (cent) with the multiplier digit without space, except for one hundred, two hundred and three hundred: cent [100], dusinte [200], tresinte [300], cuatricent [400], cinccent [500], sîscent [600]…
  • Hundreds, tens and units are linked together with the coordinating conjunction e separated with spaces (e.g.: cent e nûf [109], dusinte e trente [230], nûfcent e novantenûf [999]).
  • Thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mil) separated with a space, except for one thousand: mil [1,000], doi mil [2,000], trê mil [3,000], cuatri mil [4,000]… Thousands are linked with lower scales with the word e unless the hundred is followed by a ten or a unit (e.g.: mil e un [1,001], mil e cent [1,100], mil cent e dîs [1,110]).
  • One million (106) is un milion (plural milions), and one US billion (109) is un miliart (plural miliarts).
