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,
for example: 11 - "mien" (ten) "y" "ut" (one), mienyut

if that number starts with a consonants, instead of "y," you add "ya,"
for example: 13 - "mien" (ten) "ya" "dui" (three), mienyadui

For numbers like 20, 30 ,40, etc... you add the initial number, and then "baçu,"
for example: 30 - "dui" (three) "baçu," duibaçu

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",
for example: 21 - "uin" (two) "ba" "ut" (one), uinbaut



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.
