  • The tens are formed by starting with the name of the multiplier digit, followed by the word for zero (ze), linked with a hyphen, except for ten: deka [10], bi-ze [20], tri-ze [30], tetra-ze [40], penta-ze [50], sixa-ze [60], seti-ze [70], okto-ze [80], and nona-ze [90].
  • The numbers names are formed following the positional way in Glosa, i.e. the digits are stated from left to right (from the higher power of ten to the lower), linked with hypens. Thus, we can form: mo-penta [15] (or one-five), mo-bi-tri [123] (or one-two-three).
  • The names of the powers of ten are an exception: deka [10] (or 101), hekto [100] (or 102), kilo [1,000] (or 103), and miliona [million] (or 106).
