  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words: nul [0], bal [1], gel [2], dil [3], vol [4], mul [5], fal [6], tel [7], kil [8], and pol [9]. Technically, the letter l added at the end of each digit name (and also of each group of three digits) is an euphonic letter (which means it is present only for the nice sound of it).
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit root with nu and the euphonic l, except for ten: hal [10], genul [20], dinul [30], vonul [40], munul [50], fanul [60], tenul [70], kinul [80], and ponul [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by directly linking the ten root to the unit root with no space and the final euphonic l (e.g.: gedil [23], fabal [61]).
  • The hundreds are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred (hel) separated with a space, except for one hundred itself: hel [100], gel hel [200], dil hel [300], vol hel [400], mul hel [500], fal hel [600], tel hel [700], kil hel [800], and pol hel [900].
  • Coumpound hundreds are formed by composing each digit root and adding the final l (e.g.: banubal [101], bagenul [120], divofal [346]).
  • The thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (hil) separated with a space, except for one thousand itself: hil [1,000], gel hil [2,000], dil hil [3,000], vol hil [4,000], mul hil [5,000], fal hil [6,000], tel hil [7,000], kil hil [8,000], and pol hil [9,000].
  • Coumpound thousands are formed by composing each digit root and adding the final l (e.g.: bagedil vomufal [123,456]). However, two specific words exist for ten thousand (hol [10,000]) and one hundred thousand (hul [100,000]).
  • 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 al root by the power of one thousand multiplied by thousand. Thus, we have baal (million, 106, or 1 000*1 0001), then geal (billion, 109, or 1 000*1 0002), and dial (trillion, 1012, or 1 000*1 0003) as attested big numbers names. Following the same rules, we can go on to voal (quadrillion, 1015), mual (quintillion, 1018)… And up to poal (nonillion, 1030).
