Firstly the numbers are:

0 (zero) = döt [dət]

1 (one) = pwat [pwat]

2 (two) = cul [t͡sʊl]

3 (three) = net [nɛt]

4 (four) = höv [həŋ]

5 (five) = bai [bai]

6 (six) = tek [tɛk]

7 (seven) = betc [bɛt͡s]

8 (eight) = rä [ɾe̞]

9 (nine) = kip [kip]

10 (ten) = nök [nək]

100 (hundred) = dwi [dwi]

1000 (thousand) = erai [ɛɾai]

1000000 (million) = xek [ʃɛk]

Nefirian uses a base ten counting system which forms the basis of saying numbers in nefirian, but differs from use in English in some aspects.

**Single digit numbers**are direct as listed above.

**Double digit numbers**are different

1. To make a number that is

__10 + a single units__, the single digit is said first and then 10

E.g. 11 is said as pwat'nök; 14 is said as höv'nök

2. To make a number that is a

__multiple of 10 that is more than 19 but less than 100__, a zero must be used

E.g. 20 is said as chul'döt'nök; 50 is said as bai'döt'nök

3. To make a number that has

__units of ten + a single units__, both single numbers are said first and then 10

E.g. 36 would be said as net'tek'nök; 77 would be said as betc'betc'nök

**Triple digit numbers and higher**are a bit more complicated

4. To make a number that has

__only hundreds OR thousands OR millions units__, only the number of units and the thousand or million word needs to be used

E.g. 200 would be said as cul'dwi; 9000 would be said as kip'erai; 8000000 would be said as rä'xek

5. To make a number that has

__hundreds units AND tens units__, combine the rules for hundreds only and multiples of ten as is demonstrated in the example

E.g. 340 would be said as net'höv'döt'dwi

BUT when the hundreds unit is 1 then no number is said first as the 'dwi'said at the end implies that is was 100 + tens units

E.g. 150 would be said as bai'döt'dwi

6. To make a number that has

__hundreds units AND tens units AND a single units__replace 0 from the previous rule with the single digit number

E.g. 356 would be said as net'bai'tek'dwi

BUT when the hundreds unit is 1 then no number is said first as the 'dwi'said at the end implies that is was 100 + tens units + singles units

E.g. 146 would be said as höv'tek'dwi

7.
