## Lesson 35

### The Numerals

```
I.  Numerals like 1, 2, 319, .... that are used in simple counting and
answers the question " how many " are as follows :

0        sfr   ( adapted from Arabic)
1        Hate
2        kl'e
3        seles
4        arbaE
5        Hams
6        ss
7        seboE
8        seman
9        seE
10        Asr

Hate (1)  and kl'e (2) are the feminine form.

The masculine form is :

" woro "  or "worot"  for the number 1 , and
" kl'ot"  for the number 2.

Examples 34.1

So we say ---------->   "Hate welet" , but never "woro welet".
one girl
Like wise we say --->   "woro enas " or "worot enas"
one man
but never " Hate enas".

Similarly for the number 2 we say:

"kl'e  welet"  but never "kl'ot welet"
two girls
"kl'ot enas"   but we CAN say kl'e enas. Yes this is we Can say.
two men                      two men

II.  Number above 10 are made as follows:

for the numbers 11 to 19 , the unit numeral is placed immediately
after the invariable element Asr (10) and "we" (i.e. and ) can or
can not be used. It is optional. This last statement is only true
for numbers 11 - 19.

11     Asr Hate      or   Asr we Hate
12     Asr kl'e      or   Asr we kl'e
13     Asr seles     or   Ast we seles
14     Asr arbaE     or   Asr we ArbaE
15     Asr Hams      or   Asr we Hams
16     Asr ss        or   Asr we ss
17     Asr seboE     or   Asr we seboE
18     Asr seman     or   Asr we seman
19     Asr seE       or   Asr we seE
20     Esra

III. For numbers greater than 20 the "we" is no more optional, but it
must be used. So

21       Esra we Hate . ( Esra Hate is NOT correct).
22       Esra we kl'e
23       Esra we seles
24       Esra we arbaE
25       Esra we Hams
26       Esra we ss
27       Esra we seboE
28       Esra we seman
29       Esra we seE

30       selasa
40       arbaA
50       Hmsa
60       ssa
70       sebA
80       semanya
90       seA
100       m't

200       kl'e  m't    300  seles m't  400  arbaE m't  500 Hams m't
600       ss m't       700  seboE m't  800  seman m't  900 seE m't

1000    alf
2000    kl'e alf .... and so on.

1 000 000   melyun   ( adaptation from Arabic)

100 000   m't alf

121 832   m't we Esra we Hate alf we seman m't we selasa we kl'e

1991   alf we seE m't we seA we Hate.
