  • In the numbers written in digital form, each digit is replaced by the first letter of the name of the corresponding digit, the zero being replaced by the letter o. The number 106 is thus written bol in “digits” and sintalu in letters. In the following paragraphs, the number in “digits” will be written between parenthesis after its writing in full.
  • Digits from one to nine are specific words, namely ba (b) [1], co (c) [2], de (d) [3], ga (g) [4], ji (j) [5], lu (l) [6], ma (m) [7], ni (n) [8], and pa (p) [9].
  • The tens are formed by prefixing the word for ten (vu) by its multiplier digit, except for ten itself: vu (bo) [10], covu (co) [20], devu (do) [30], gavu (go) [40], jivu (jo) [50], luvu (lo) [60], mavu (mo) [70], nivu (no) [80], and pavu (po) [90].
  • The compound numbers are formed by juxtaposing the ten and the unit (e.g.: covuji (cj) [25], pavuco (pc) [92]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (sinta) by its multiplier digit, except for one hundred: sinta (boo) [100], cosinta (coo) [200], desinta (doo) [300], gasinta (goo) [400], jisinta (joo) [500], lusinta (loo) [600], masinta (moo) [700], nisinta (noo) [800], and pasinta (poo) [900].
  • The thousands are formed by prefixing the word for thousand (mila) by its multiplier digit, except for one thousand: mila (booo) [1,000], comila (cooo) [2,000], demila (dooo) [3,000], gamila (gooo) [4,000], jimila (jooo) [5,000], lumila (looo) [6,000], mamila (mooo) [7,000], nimila (nooo) [8,000], and pamila (pooo) [9,000].
  • The compound numbers above one hundred are formed by juxtaposing their digits from the higher power of ten down to the smaller (e.g.: sintalu (sol) [106], milamasintaluvuji (smlj) [1,765], comilagavuni (cogn) [2,048]).
  • The word for million (106) is milo, which is written boooooo in “digits”.
