Menu 1. Cardinal Numbers 2. Ordinal Numbers

The numeral system in Classical Sitr was decimal, with 20 being irregular, and there's an archaic irregular form for 50 alongside with the regular form; also, Classical Sitr uses a system based on 100,000 and 10,000,000 when it comes to larger numbers, which is similar to Indian languages.

[edit] [top]Cardinal Numbers

Below are the cardinal numerals in Classical Sitr:

-1: as
-2: daa
-3: das
-4: athal
-5: kal
-6: chas
-7: chad
-8: dagar
-9: asgad
-10: daal
-11: daal as
-12: daal daa
-13: daal das
-14: daal athal
-15: daal kal
-16: daal chas
-17: daal chad
-18: daal dagar
-19: daal asgad
-20: nvsaam
-30: dansa
-40: athaldal
-50: kaldal / kardaalna(archaic)
-60: chasdal
-70: chaddal
-80: dagardal
-90: asgaddal
-100: (as) daalna
-1,000: (as) mvnaat
-10,000: daal mvnaat / (as) paltvr(rare)
-100,000: (as) bektvr
-10,000,000: (as) maatvr

daalna, mvnaat, paltvr, bektvr and maatvr act like nouns, and are always preceded by smaller numerals when they are used as numerals.

paltvr is rarely used, one usually uses tens of mvnaat instead.

The way to form numerals are straightforward, larger numerals always come before smaller ones:

- 29 - nvsaam asgad(20+9)
- 36 - dansa chas(30+6)
- 188 - as daalna dagar daal dagar(1x100+8x10+8)
- 2,341 - daa mvnaat das daalna athaldal as(2x1,000+3x100+40+1)
- 38,835 - das daal dagar mvnaat dagar daalna dansa kal((3x10+8)x1,000+8x100+30+5) / das paltvr dagar mvnaat dagar daalna dansa kal(3x10,000+8x1,000+8x100+30+5)(rare)
- 131,072 - as bektvr das daal as mvnaat chaddal daa(1x100,000+(3x10+1)x1,000+70+2) / as bektvr das paltvr as mvnaat chaddal daa(1x100,000+3x10,000+1x1,000+70+2)(rare)

Larger numerals are listed below, they are basically formed by the repetitive use of daal, daalna, mvnaat, bektvr and maatvr:
- 108: (as) daal maatvr(10x10,000,000)
- 109: (as) daalna maatvr(100x10,000,000)
- 1010: (as) mvnaat maatvr(1000x10,000,000)
- 1011: (as) daal mvnaat maatvr(10x1000x10,000,000)
- 1012: (as) bektvr maatvr(100,000x10,000,000)
- 1014: (as) maatvr maatvr(10,000,000x10,000,000)
and so on.

[edit] [top]Ordinal Numbers

Ordinal numbers are formed with the suffix -ni on the basis of the cardinal numbers; however, the word for "first" is irregular, and there's an archaic irregular form for "second" alongside with the regular form, and for ordinal numbers for numerals ending in "one", the ending is replaced with the corresponding word for "first" accordingly.

Below are the ordinal in Classical Sitr:

-1st: gaani
-2nd: daani / naagni(rare)
-3rd: dasni
-4th: athalni
-5th: kalni
-6th: chasni
-7th: chadni
-8th: dagarni
-9th: asgadni
-10th: daalni
-11th: daal gaani
-12th: daal daani
-13th: daal dasni
-14th: daal athalni
-15th: daal kalni
-16th: daal chasni
-17th: daal chadni
-18th: daal dagarni
-19th: daal asgadni
-20th: nvsaamni
-30th: dansani
-40th: athaldalni
-50th: kaldalni / kardaalnani(archaic)
-60th: chasdalni
-70th: chaddalni
