Working with numbers and a foreign language like Tsolyáni at the same time is one of the best ways to train our little gray cells, so let's see what rules you need to apply to number in Tsolyáni
Tsolyáni numbers are made of a root, to which we add a suffix. There are noble and ignoble suffixes (respectively koi and kh), a suffix designating a whole (kh: gabí-kh, “all six”), another for plural numbers (yal: gabíyal, “six (of a bigger group)”). Adjectives are marked by the suffix n if the root ends with a vocal, and in if it ends with a consonant. They are used for abstract counting.
Digits roots from zero to nine are sǘdh , prú , gá , bí , mrí , tló , gabí , hrú , gámi , and prútle . From them, we can form the digits from zero to nine: sǘdhin , prún , gán , bín , mrín , tlón , gabín , hrún , gámin , and prútlen .
Tens roots sometimes include the root of the multiplier digit: tlé , sémru , bílu , sím , haló , latsá , hrunál , gamál , and prutleníl . From these roots, we can form the following tens: tlén , sémrun , bílun , símin , halón , latsán , hrunálin , gamálin , and prutlenílin .
Compound numbers are formed starting with the unit root, directly followed by the ten with no space with its adjective suffix (e.g.: gabìbílun , gámihalón ).
Hundreds are formed prefixing the root for hundred (mriktá) by the multiplier root, except for one hundred, and suffixing it with the adjective suffix (i)n: mriktán , gámriktán , bímriktán , mrìmriktán , tlómriktán , gabímriktán , hrúmriktán , gámimriktán , and prútlemriktán .
Compound hundreds are formed starting with the unit, the ten, or the compound ten, then the hundred separated with a space, each group bearing the adjective suffix (i)n (e.g.: tlón gámriktán , gabìbílun mrìmriktán  (36 400)).
Thousands are formed prefixing the root for thousand (tauknél) by the multiplier root, except for one thousand, and suffixing it with the adjective suffix (i)n: tauknélin [1,000], gátauknélin [2,000], bítauknélin [3,000], mrìtauknélin [4,000], tlótauknélin [5,000], gabítauknélin [6,000], hrútauknélin [7,000], gámitauknélin [8,000], and prútletauknélin [9,000].
Big compound numbers are formed starting with the unit, the ten, or the compound ten, then the hundred separated with a space, then the thousand separated with a space, and so on with each scale number, each group bearing the adjective suffix (i)n (e.g.: gabìbílun mrìmriktán gabìtauknélin [6,436] (36 400 6,000)).
The Tsolyáni language has a root for ten thousand: tsólotl. Ten thousands are formed following the same pattern as hundreds and thousands: tsólotlin [10,000], gátsólotlin [20,000], bítsólotlin [30,000]…
The root for million is yürdǘn, on which we can form yürdǘnin [1 million], gáyürdǘnin [2 millions], bíyürdǘnin [3 millions]…
