  • Digits from zero to nine are rendered by specific words, namely niš [0], an [1], ďun [2], ďin [3], par [4], pan [5], sués [6], hep [7], žoc [8], and nev [9].
  • Tens are formed prefixing the word for ten (dec) by the combined form of its multiplier digit, except for ten itself. These combined forms are: dva- [2], tve- [3], če- [4], pa- [5], sue- [6], ë- [7], žo- [8], and në- [9]. Thus, we can form the following tens: dec [10], dvadec [20], tvedec [30], čedec [40], padec [50], suedec [60], ëdec [70], žodec [80], and nëdec [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, directly followed with the unit, with no space (e.g.: dežán [11], tvedecpán [35]). Some phonetic changes occur, like c+a=ža and c+ž=ž, and the last vowel is accented (-an gives -án).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier combined form (its last vowel gains an acute accent in the process), directly followed by the word for hundred (šatem), with no space, except for one hundred: šatem [100], dvášatem [200], tvéšatem [300], čéšatem [400], pášatem [500], suéšatem [600], ëšatem [700], žóšatem [800], and nëšatem [900].
  • Higher scale numbers are formed starting with the multiplier, then the scale word, separated with a space. Those scale numbers are: mil [thousand, 103], leh [hundred of thousand, 105], perun [million, 106], ftoron [billion, 109], and tveron [trillion, 1012].
