So, a millionth is "milionoono"? or "mili"?

Why is centmil wrong? It follows the same pattern as kvardek or sescent.

Probably because tens and hundreds can only have a number up to 9 in front of them, but thousands can have a number up to 999 in front of them.

So 452000 = kvarcent kvindek du mil, not kvarcent kvindek dumil or kvarcentkvindekdumil.

Great! It's the first time I notice that. It's now logical and understandable.

Koran Dankon! :)
