  • Digits and numbers up to ten are specific words, namely zeru [0], unu [1], duos/duas (feminine/masculine) [2], tres [3], bàtoro [4], chimbe [5], ses [6], sete [7], oto [8], noe [9], and deghe [10]. From eleven to sixteen, the number is formed from the root of the digit followed by the plural form of ten: undighi [11], doighi [12], treighi [13], batordighi [14], bindighi [15], and seighi [16]. From seventeen, the order is reversed, as the unit is directly put after the ten (eg. deghesete [17], bintitres [23], barantaduos [42]). An apocope is observed when the unit is one (eg. bintunu [21] and not bintiunu).
  • The tens have specific names based on the multiplier digit root, except for ten and twenty: deghe [10], binti [20], trinta [30], baranta [40], chinbanta [50], sessanta [60], setanta [70], otanta [80] and nonanta [90].
  • The same applies for the hundreds where one word is created by removing the space between the multiplier and the hundred word: chentu [100] (plural chentos), duchentos [200], trechentos [300], batorchentos [400], chinbichentos [500], seschentos [600], setechentos [700], otochentos [800], and nobichentos [900].
  • The word for thousand (milli, plural miza) being feminine, two agrees in gender with it: two thousand is duamiza.
