  • Digits from one to nine are specific words: un [1], du [2], tri [3], quar [4], kin [5], sis [6], sep [7], ok [8], and non [9].
  • Tens are formed by prefixing the word for ten (dek) by its multiplier digit, followed by the letter a, except for ten itself: dek [10], duadek [20], triadek [30], quaradek [40], kinadek [50], sisadek [60], sepadek [70], okadek [80], and nonadek [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten with its unit digit with the word e (and) separated with dashes (e.g.: dek-e-un [11], quaradek-e-kin [45]).
  • Hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (cent) by its multiplier digit, followed by the lettre a, except for one hundred itself: cent [100], duacent [200], triacent [300], quaracent [400], kinacent [500], sisacent [600], sepacent [700], okacent [800], and nonacent [900].
  • Thousands are formed like hundreds, i.e. by prefixing the word for thousand (mil) by its multiplier digit, followed by the lettre a, except for one thousand itself: mil [1,000], duamil [2,000], triamil [3,000], quaramil [4,000], kinamil [5,000], sisamil [6,000], sepamil [7,000], okamil [800], and nonamil [9,000]. Higher multiples of one thousand are formed the same way (e.g.: dekamil [10,000], centamil [100,000]).
  • Higher scale numbers follow the long scale numbers rule in which every new term greater than million is one million times the previous term: un milion [1 million] (106), un miliardo [1 billion] (109), un biliono [1 trillion] (1012).
