Digits from one to nine are specific words, namely lha’ , naa-xe , taa-xe , dvn-chi’ , srwee-la’ , k’wee-staa-ni , srch’ee-t’e , laa-nii-srvt-naa-ta , and lha’-duy .

Compound numbers are formed by saying the ten, the unit name linked with hypens, and then the suffix ch’aa-ta (e.g.: nee-san-taa-xe-ch’aa-ta , naa-tvn-nee-san-k’wee-staa-nii-ch’aa-ta ). Some duplication of the last vowel of the unit may occur.
Hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit, the word dvn (times) linked with hyphens, and the word for hundred chvn, except for one hundred itself: lha’-chvn , naa-tvn-lha’-chvn  (2*100)…
One thousand litteraly means “ten times one hundred”: nee-san-tvn-lha’-chvn [1,000].
