The counting system is base 10, though there are hints of a base 6 system underneath.

Each number is made from its root with a suffix indicating what you are counting. The suffixes are as follows:

The number roots, from 1-9, are as follows:

When you count, and you aren’t counting anything, just listing off numbers, use the “-ga” suffix, like so:

- maga
- bwega
- zhuga
- loga
- viga
- kaga
- amaga
- ewega
- uzhuga

To make multiples of 10, you’ll add a special suffix: -nn. N is an easily changed sound, and it’ll change to be close to whatever consonant following it.

Examples:

- Manga – #10
- Bweffo do -20 stones
- Zhunna gossa – 30 flowers
- Loshhi anore – 40 people

To put numbers in the 1’s place, prefix the needed number root.

- Uzhu'manga – #19
- Ewe'bweffo do – 28 stones
- Ama'zhunna gossa – 37 flowers
- Ka'loshhi anore – 46 people

To make multiples of 100, you’ll add the suffix: -yi.

- Loyiga – #400
- Viefo do – 500 stones (Note that –yi is an –e in this case)
- Kayina gossa – 600 flowers
- Eweyishi anore – 700 people

Then, if you want to put numbers in the ten’s place, prefix that number with the -nn suffix, like so:

- Mann'mayiga – #110
- Bwenn'bweyifo do – 220 stones
- Zhunn'zhuyina gossa – 330 flowers
- Lonn'loyishi anore – 440 people
- Vinn'viega – #550
- Kann'kayifo do – 660 stones
- Amann'amayina gossa - 770 flowers
- Ewenn'eweyishi anore – 880 people
- Uzhunn'uzhuyiga – #990

To make multiples of 1000, you’ll add the suffix -a. In the Sin'sian dialect it will interact with the vowels in the numbers in interesting ways, so pay careful attention.

- Maaga – #1000
- Bweafo/Bwaafo do – 2000 stones
- Zhuana/Gwana gossa – 3000 flowers
- Loashi/Laashi anore – 4000 people
- Viaga – #5000
- Kaafo do – 6000 stones

These numbers can get quite long, like: 1357 - Ama'vinn'zhuyi'maaga
