  • The tens are quite irregular, sometimes following a phonetic change pattern (-ak to -az), or the addition of a specific suffix (-oz), or concatenating digits names: ishrakig [10] (concatenation of the words for five and two, meaning five times two), gogoz [20], gagaz [30], roraz [40], izraz [50], nizgaz [60], nazgiz [70], shazoz [80], and shakoz [90].

  • The compound numbers above twenty are formed by stating the ten and the digit name separated with a hyphen (e.g.: gogoz-ig [22], nazgiz-sha [78]).
