  • Compound numbers are formed by juxtaposing the ten and the unit with no space (e.g.: ennadici [11], doyedixi [26]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (son) with the multiplier digit, except for one hundred itself: son [100], doson [200], tinson [300], cason [400], penson [500], xison [600], zunson [700], atuson [800], and nunson [900].
