Arlo, this is an article about numbers in Mesyar, it starts pretty simple but it can get really confusing, but remember, it is all based on adding numbers to the left to make it bigger, just like you would do it in Math.**Basic numbers 0-10**

Zero - Nå

One - Ut

Two - Uin

Three - Dui

Four - Eid

Five - Mein

Six - Gae

Seven - Båe

Eight - Otae

Nine - Mue

Ten - Mien

**More numbers 11-99**

From the numbers 11 to 99, things change a little bit, in the case of 11 to 19, you add "mien" (ten) and "y" to the initial number,

if that number starts with a consonants, instead of "y," you add "ya,"

For numbers like 20, 30 ,40, etc... you add the initial number, and then "baçu,"

And if you want a number like 23, you follow the same rule as for 11 to 19, but using the word for 2 instead of 10 and using "ba" instead of "y" or "ya",

Eleven - Mienyut

Twelve - Mienyuin

Thirteen - Mienyadui

Twenty - Uinbaçu

Twenty-one - Uinbaut

Thirty - Duibaçu

Thirty-one - Duibaut

Forty - Eidbaçu

Fifty - Meinbaçu

Sixty - Gaebaçu

Seventy - Båebaçu

Eighty - Otaebaçu

Ninety - Muebaçu

**Bigger numbers 100-99**

Let's make this easier, I will just write a big number and break each rule slowly, 63481 - gaebaduimaiye eidbå otaebaut - let's break it down.

"Gae" (six) + "ba" + "dui" (three) = 63 + "maiye" (one thousand) = 63000

63000 + "eid" (four) + "bå" (hundred) = 63400

63400 + "otae" (eight) "ba" + "ut" (one) = 63481 = Gaebaduimaiye eidbå otaebaut

So, this is basically all you need to know, if you want to say one million you just say how many thousands (maiye) has one million, in case that you run out of numbers, imagine "one billion," just say "999999 maiye + 999999 maiye + 999999 maiye + etc..." There are also specific names for "one million" and "one billion," but they are more informal.
