  • Digits from one to nine are specific words, namely kérén [1], ̀fírín [2], sàxán [3], náání [4], súlí [5], sénní [6], sólófèré [7], sólómásàxán [8], and sólómánáání [9].
  • Tens from thirty to ninety are built by setting the word tòngó (to take) before the multiplier digit, which can be understood as the taking of a ten: tòngó sàxán [30], tòngó náání [40], tòngó súlí [50], tòngó sénní [60], tòngó sólófèré [70], tòngó sólómásàxán [80], and tòngó sólómánáání [90]. Ten and twenty have specific names: fuú [10] and m̀ɔx̀ɔǵɛŋ [20].
  • Tens and units are linked with nŭn (e.g.: m̀ɔx̀ɔǵɛŋ nŭn sàxán [23], tòngó sólómánáání nŭn súlí [95]).
  • Hundreds and thousands are constructed by setting the multiplier digit after the matching scale word, either k̀ɛḿɛ for hundred or wúlù for thousand. This way, we get k̀ɛḿɛ [100] (without multiplier unit), k̀ɛḿɛ ̀fírín [200], k̀ɛḿɛ sàxán [300], k̀ɛḿɛ náání [400], k̀ɛḿɛ súlí [500], k̀ɛḿɛ sénní [600]… and wúlù kérén [1,000], wúlù ̀fírín [2,000], wúlù sàxán [3,000], wúlù náání [4,000]…
