Numbers from one to ten are specific words, namely vun  (feminine: vuna), duu  (feminine: dò), trii  (feminine: tré), quatter , cinch , ses , sett , vott , noeuv , and des .
From eleven to sixteen, the number is formed from the root of the digit followed by ten: vundes , dodes , tredes , quattordes , quindes , and sedes . From seventeen to nineteen, the order is reversed, as the unit is directly put after the ten: dersett  (with a consonant change here), desdott , and desnoeuv .
The tens have specific names based on the matching multiplier digit root except for ten and twenty: des , vint , trenta , quaranta , cinquanta , sessanta , settanta , vottanta , and novanta .
Compound numbers are formed by juxtaposing the ten and the unit, causing an apheresis of the first letter of the unit after twenty for one and eight (e.g.: vintun , vinttrii , vintott ) and for eight only for higher tens (e.g.: trentavun , quarantott ).
The hundreds are formed by removing the space between the multiplier and the word for hundred (cent), with some irregularities: cent , dusent , tresent , quattercent , cinchcent , ses’cent , settcent , vottcent , and noeuvcent .
Hundreds, tens and units are linked together with no space (e.g.: centnoeuv , dusenttrenta , noeuvcentnovantanoeuv ).
Thousands are formed by setting the multiplier digit, then a space and the word for thousand (mila), except for one thousand itself (note that thousand is feminine, hence its multipier is set in feminine gender): mila [1,000], dò mila [2,000], tré mila [3,000], quatter mila [4,000], cinch mila [5,000]…
Groups of three digits are linked with the coordinating conjunction e (and) (e.g.: mila e cent [1,100], on milion e dusenttrentaquatter mila e cinchcentsessantasett [1,234,567]).
One million is on milion, and one billion, on miliard.
