  • Digits from one to nine are specific words, namely один (odin) [1], два (dva) [2], три (tri) [3], чотири (čotiri) [4], п’ять (p’âtʹ) [5], шість (šìstʹ) [6], сім (sìm) [7], вісім (vìsìm) [8], and дев’ять (dev’âtʹ) [9].
  • The tens are formed by adding the word for ten (десять, desâtʹ) at the end of the digits, with the exception of ten where the unit is implicit, and both forty and ninety: десять (desâtʹ) [10], двадцять (dvadcâtʹ) [20], тридцять (tridcâtʹ) [30], сорок (sorok) [40], п’ятдесят (p’âtdesât) [50], шістдесят (šìstdesât) [60], сімдесят (sìmdesât) [70], вісімдесят (vìsìmdesât) [80], and дев’яносто (dev’ânosto) [90].
  • From eleven to nineteen, the compound numbers are built by saying the unit digit and a form of the word for ten (надцять, nadcâtʹ) with no space: одинадцять (odinadcâtʹ) [11], дванадцять (dvanadcâtʹ) [12], тринадцять (trinadcâtʹ) [13], чотирнадцять (čotirnadcâtʹ) [14], п’ятнадцять (p’âtnadcâtʹ) [15], шістнадцять (šìstnadcâtʹ) [16], сімнадцять (sìmnadcâtʹ) [17], вісімнадцять (vìsìmnadcâtʹ) [18], and дев’ятнадцять (dev’âtnadcâtʹ) [19].
  • From twenty-one to ninety-nine, the compound numbers are built by saying the ten, then the digit separated by a space (e.g.: двадцять три (dvadcâtʹ tri) [23], тридцять п’ять (tridcâtʹ p’âtʹ) [35]).
  • Hundreds are built by setting the multiplier digit before the word for hundred which takes different forms: сто (sto) [100], двісті (dvìstì) [200], триста (trista) [300], чотириста (čotirista) [400], п’ятсот (p’âtsot) [500], шістсот (šìstsot) [600], сімсот (sìmsot) [700], вісімсот (vìsìmsot) [800], and дев’ятсот (dev’âtsot) [900].
  • Thousands are built by setting the multiplier digit before the word for thousand (тисяча, tisâča) which takes a different form after the multipliers two, three and four: одна тисяча (odna tisâča) [1,000], дві тисячі (dvì tisâčì) [2,000], три тисячі (tri tisâčì) [3,000], чотири тисячі (čotiri tisâčì) [4,000], п’ять тисяч (p’âtʹ tisâč) [5,000], шість тисяч (šìstʹ tisâč) [6,000], сім тисяч (sìm tisâč) [7,000], вісім тисяч (vìsìm tisâč) [8,000], and дев’ять тисяч (dev’âtʹ tisâč) [9,000].
  • When compound, the thousands are said before the hundreds, the hundreds before the tens, and the tens before the digits (e.g.: дві тисячі чотирнадцять (dvì tisâčì čotirnadcâtʹ) [2,014], три тисячі, дев’ятсот двадцять вісім (tri tisâčì, dev’âtsot dvadcâtʹ vìsìm) [3,928]).
  • The word for million is мільйон (mìlʹjon), the word for billion, мільярд (mìlʹârd), and trillion (1012) is трильйон (trilʹjon).
