  • Compound numbers are formed by linking the ten and the unit (in its object form) with the conjunction niikyang (and), obligatory for the twenties, and optional for the other tens, and adding the word siikya’ta (additional) after the unit: pakwt (niikyang) tsivot siikya’ta [15], sunat niikyang paykomuy siikya’ta [23], payiv pakwt (niikyang) nanalt siikya’ta [38].
  • One hundred is palotsikiv pakwt (or literally 10 times 10).
