    Sveiki!
    Šodien mēs mācīsimies skaitīt latviešu valodā.
    Today we will learn to count in Latvian (language).
    1 viens
    2 divi
    3 trīs
    4 četri
    5 pieci
    6 seši
    7 septiņi
    8 astoņi
    9 deviņi
    10 desmit

    11 vienpadsmit
    12 divpadsmit
    13 trīspadsmit
    14 četrpadsmit
    15 piecpadsmit
    16 sešpadsmit
    17 septiņpadsmit
    18 astoņpadsmit
    19 deviņpadsmit

    20 divdesmit
    21 divdesmit viens
    22 divdesmit
    ...

    30 trīsdesmit
    40 četrdesmit
    50 piecdesmit
    60 sešdesmit
    70 septiņdesmit
    80 astoņdesmit
    90 deviņdesmit
    100 simts
    (To make numbers like 27 and 64, use the numbers 20, 30, ..., 90 and add a cipher. For numbers like 163 and 185, say "simtu" and add the number of two other ciphers.)

    • Cik tas maksā? How much does it cost?
    • ... eiro ... euro/-s

    Man ir viens gads.
    Man ir 2-9 gadi.
    Man ir 10-19 gadi.
    Man ir 20, 30, ... gadi/gadu.
    Man ir 21, 31, ... gads.

    Paldies! I have a question, however. Some languages with case systems require the word after a number to be in a certain case. In some Slavic languages like Russian, Ukrainian, and some others AFAIK, there are rules indicating what case should be used after a number, like один кот (one cat) (cat is nominative singular), два кота (two cats) (cat is genitive singular), пять котов (five cats) (cat is genitive plural), etc. In Ossetian, the word must be in the genitive case, e.g. иу мæй (one month), дыууæ мæйы (two months), etc. Are there any similar rules in Latvian?
