  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: null [0], un [1], du [2], tri [3], quar [4], quin [5], six [6], sett [7], ott [8], and nin [9].
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with ant, except for ten: deci [10], duant [20], triant [30], quarant [40], quinant [50], sixant [60], settant [70], ottant [80], and ninant [90].
  • The hundreds are formed like the tens, i.e. by prefixing the word for hundred (cent) with its multiplier digit, except for one hundred itself: cent [100], ducent [200], tricent [300], quarcent [400], quincent [500]…
  • The thousands are formed setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (mill) separated with a space, except for one thousand itself: mill [1,000], du mill [2,000], tri mill [3,000], quar mill [4,000], quin mill [5,000]…
  • Compound numbers are formed by stating the biggest number first, and going down the scale to the lower, separating them by a space, except between the ten and the unit (e.g.: decidu [12], quarcent quinantsix [456], du mill tricent quarantquin [2,345]).
  • Higher scale numbers follow the long scale numbers rule in which every new term greater than one million is one million times the previous term: million [million] (106), mill million [billion] (109), billion [trillion] (1012), mill billion [quadrillion] (1015), trillion [quintillion] (1018)…
