Georgian lesson: Numbers

Here we will talk about numbers in Georgian :) I should warn you that Georgian number system is similar to French one, for example, for 90, we say ოთხმოცდაათი (Otkhmotsdaati), which literally means "four twenties and ten", the same as "quatre vingt dis" in French :) Here are the numbers:

1-ერთი (Erti)

2-ორი (Ori)

3-სამი (Sami)

4-ოთხი (Otkhi)

5-ხუთი (Khuti)

6-ექვსი (Eqvsi)

7-შვიდი (Shvidi)

8-რვა (Rva)

9-ცხრა (Tskhra)

10-ათი (Ati)

11-თერთმეტი (Tertmeti) (This name derived from ათერთმეტი (Atertmeti), which literally means "one more than ten")

12-თორმეტი (Tormeti) (This name derived from ათორმეტი (Atormeti), which literally means "two more than ten")

13-ცამეტი (Tsameti) (This name derived from ათსამმეტი (Atsammeti), which literally means "three more than ten")

14-თოთხმეტი (Totkhmeti) (This name derived from ათოთხმეტი (Atotkhmeti), which literally means "four more than ten")

15-თხუთმეტი (Tkhutmeti) (This name derived from ათხუთმეტი (Atkhutmeti), which literally means "five more than ten")

16-თექვსმეტი (Teqvsmeti) (This name derived from ათექვსმეტი (Ateqvsmeti), which literally means "six more than ten")

17-ჩვიდმეტი (Chvidmeti) (This name derived from ათშვიდმეტი (Atshvidmeti), which miterally means "seven more than ten")

18-თვრამეტი (Tvrameti) (This name derived from ათრვამეტი (Atrvameti), which literally means "eight more than ten")

19-ცხრამეტი (Tskhrameti) (This name derived from ათცხრამეტი (Attskhrameti), which literally means "nine more than ten")

20-ოცი (Otsi)

21-ოცდაერთი (Otsdaerti) (This literally means "twenty and one", as ოც (Ots) is "twenty", და (Da) is "and" and ერთი (Erti) is "one")

30-ოცდაათი (Otsdaati) (This literally means "twenty and ten")

40-ორმოცი (Ormotsi) (This literally means "two twenties", as ორ (Or) means "two" and ოცი (Otsi) means "twenty")

50-ორმოცდაათი (Ormotsdaati) (This literally means "two twenties and ten", as ორმოც (Ormots) means "two twenties", და (Da)-"and", and ათი (Ati)-"ten")

60-სამოცი (Samotsi) (This literally means "three twenties", as სამ (Sam) means "three" and ოცი (Otsi)-"twenty")

70-სამოცდაათი (Samotsdaati) (This literally means "three twenties and ten")

80-ოთხმოცი (Otkhmotsi) (This literally means "four twenties", as in French, "quatre vingt"-"four twenties")

90-ოთხმოცდაათი (Otkhmotsdaati) (Literally meaning "four twenties and ten")

100-ასი (Asi)

101-ას ერთი (As erti) (Pay attention that after 100 all numbers are written separatedly, as in "one hundred and one")

200-ორასი (Orasi) (Pay attention that if number goes before 100, it's written together)

1000-ათასი (Atasi)

10 000-ათი ათასი (Ati atasi)

100 000-ასი ათასი (Asi atasi)

1 000 000-მილიონი (Milioni)

1 000 000 000-მილიარდი (Miliardi) (Note that we never say ბილიონი (Bilioni), it's a mistake :) Proper Georgian is მილიარდი (Miliardi))

These are important Georgian numbers :) Hope you enjoyed. Thanks for reading :)

Do you mean "bilioni" doesn't exist or that it's never used for 10^9 but for 10^12 instead?

No it doesn't exist :D But sometimes foreigners mess it :) 10^12 is called ტრილიონი (Trilioni).
