.
• Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: zax [0], zab [1], zac [2], zad [3], zaf [4], zag [5], zal [6], zam [7], zaq [8], and zar [9].
• The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit with the word ax (which is the word for other, unless it is a mere coincidence): zabax [10], zacax [20], zadax [30], zafax [40], zagax [50], zalax [60], zamax [70], zaqax [80], and zarax [90].
• Compound numbers are formed by juxtaposing the ten root (or the multiplier digit) with the end of the unit name, removing the initial z (e.g.: zacab [21] (from zacax and zab), zalam [67]).
• The hundreds are formed by stating the multiplier digit, then the word for hundred (zaw) separated with a space, except for one hundred itself: zaw [100], zac zaw [200], zad zaw [300], zaf zaw [400], zag zaw [500], zal zaw [600], zam zaw [700], zaq zaw [800], and zar zaw [900].
• The thousands are formed by stating the multiplier digit, then the word for thousand (zay) separated with a space, except for one thousand itself: zay [1,000], zac zay [2,000], zad zay [3,000], zaf zay [4,000], zag zay [5,000]…
• Large numbers names are following the short scale principle, in which each new term is one thousand times its previous one. They are formed by suffixing the za root (the word for number) by the number of millions. Thus, we have zazab (million, 106), then zazac (billion, 109), zazad (trillion, 1012), zazaf (quadrillion, 1015), zazag (quintillion, 1018)… And we can go up to zazar (nonillion, 1030).
