  • Digits from one to nine are: mēre [1] (-ior, class II), lanta [2] (-ys, -on, -or, class I), hāre [3] (-ior, class II), izula [4] (-ys, -on, -or, class I), tōma [5] (-ys, -on, -or, class I), bȳre [6] (-ior, class II), sīkuda [7] (-ys, -on, -or, class I), jēnqa [8] (-ys, -on, -or, class I), and vōre [9] (-ior, class II).
  • The tens are formed by prefixing the -epsa root with the multiplier digit where the ending a is replaced by a e, lengthening it into a ē, except for ten itself: ampa [10], lantēpsa [20], hārēpsa [30], izulēpsa [40], tōmēpsa [50], bȳrēpsa [60], sīkudēpsa [70], jēnqēpsa [80], and vōrēpsa [90]. The words for tens are not inflected.
  • In compound numbers, the ten follows the standard juxtaposition process of coordination, i.e. the final vowel is lengthened, and main stress shifts to the last syllable. Besides, the unit is set before the ten, separated with a space (e.g.: hāre ampā [13], tōma izulepsā [45], jēnqa sīkudepsā [78]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (gār), except for one hundred itself: gār [100], lanta gār [200], hāre gār [300], izula gār [400], tōma gār [500], bȳre gār [600], sīkuda gār [700], jēnqa gār [800], and vōre gār [900]. The word for hundred is not inflected, and compound hundreds are formed straightforward (hāre gār izula jēnqepsā [384], bȳre gār jēnqa hārepsā [638]).
  • The word for thousand is pyrys.
