  • Numbers from one to nine are specific words, namely úskah [1], téken / tékni [2], áhsʌ [3], kayé [4], wisk [5], yá·yahk [6], tsya·ták [7], tékluˀ [8], and wá·tlu [9].
  • Tens are formed by putting the multiplier digit before the word for tens or decades (niwáshʌ), except for ten itself and for twenty (for which it is contracted): oye·lí [10], tewáshʌ [20], áhsʌ niwáshʌ [30], kayé niwáshʌ [40], wisk niwáshʌ [50], yá·yahk niwáshʌ [60], tsya·ták niwáshʌ [70], tékluˀ niwáshʌ [80], and wá·tlu niwáshʌ [90].
  • The teens are formed by putting the word yawʌ·lé after the unit name (e.g.: úskah yawʌ·lé [11], kayé yawʌ·lé [14]). In the other compound numerals, the ten is put first, then the digit (e.g.: tewáshʌ wisk [25], wisk niwáshʌ tékluˀ [58]).
  • Hundreds are constructed by saying the multiplier unit, then the word for hundred (tewʌˀnyáwelu), except for one hundred itself: tewʌˀnyáwelu [100], téken tewʌˀnyáwelu [200], áhsʌ tewʌˀnyáwelu [300], kayé tewʌˀnyáwelu [400], wisk tewʌˀnyáwelu [500], yá·yahk tewʌˀnyáwelu [600], tsya·ták tewʌˀnyáwelu [700], tékluˀ tewʌˀnyáwelu [800], and wá·tlu tewʌˀnyáwelu [900].
  • In compound numerals, the hundred and the ten, and the hundred and the unit are linked together by the word ok, meaning on (e.g.: tewʌˀnyáwelu ok tékni yawʌ·lé [112], tsya·ták tewʌˀnyáwelu ok wisk [705]).
  • One thousand is skanutó·tslat, which means one box.
