  • Digits from one to nine are specific words: wuhkuh [1], dahkuh [2], rehkuh [3], kehkuh [4], kaukuh [5], shehkuh [6], stehkuh [7], ohkuh [8], and naukuh [9]. The word for ten (lehkuh) follows the same pattern, i.e. a three-letter root suffixed with kuh.
  • The tens are formed by suffixing the multiplier digit root with the root of the word for ten (leh), separated with a hyphen, except for ten itself: lehkuh [10], dah-leh [20], reh-leh [30], keh-leh [40], kau-leh [50], sheh-leh [60], steh-leh [70], oh-leh [80], and nau-leh [90].
  • Teens are formed by stating the root of the word for ten (leh) and the digit root separated with a hyphen (e.g.: leh-wuh [11] (from lehkuh wuhkuh), leh-sheh [16]).
  • The compound numbers above twenty are formed by stating the ten and the digit name separated with a space (e.g.: dah-leh kaukuh [25], kau-leh ohkuh [58]).
  • The hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (teh) with the root of its multiplier, except for one hundred itself: teh [100], dah-teh [200], reh-teh [300], keh-teh [400], kau-teh [500]…
  • The thousands are formed following the hundreds pattern, with the multiplier being a ten: leh-teh [1,000] (10*100), dah-leh-teh [2,000] (20*100), reh-leh-teh [3,000] (30*100), keh-leh-teh [4,000] (40*100), kau-leh-teh [5,000] (50*100)…
  • One million is zhoh, and one billion (109) is moh.
