  • While following a nonal numeral system, Grayis numbers also have an inner ternary numeral system we can see through the digits etymology. The digits from one to eight are: [1], ai [2], chil [3], chirri [4] (3+1), kilai [5] (3+2), aichī [6] (2*3), chalayī [7] (4*2-1), and nauri [8] (9-1).
  • The tens are formed by setting a form of the multiplier digit before the number nine (which is ten in base nine), except for nine itself: [109/910], ayinnā [209/1810], chillīkka [309/2710], chirrinnā [409/3610], kilinnā [509/4510], aichinnā [609/5410], chalainā [709/6310], and naurinnā [809/7210].
  • The nonal numbers from 119 to 189 are formed starting with the word for the nonal ten () with no diacritic, directly followed by the unit with no space: narī [119/1010], nanai [129/1110], nachil [139/1210], nachirri [149/1310], nakilai [159/1410], nalaichī [169/1510], nachalayī [179/1610], and nanāli [189/1710].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, then the conjunction ha (and), and the unit (e.g.: ayinnā ha chil [239/2110], chalainā ha kilai [759/6810])
  • The nonal hundred is duhkā [1009/8110].
  • Higher scale numbers are: kaigu [nonal thousand, (109)3/72910 or (8110)3], nakaigu [nonal ten thousand, 10,0009/6,56110 or (310)8], duhkakkaigu [nonal hundred thousand, 100,0009/59,04910 or (310)10], īlim [nonal million, (109)6/531,44110 or (8110)6], jumai [nonal billion, (109)9/387,420,48910 or (8110)9].
