    Numbers from 11 to 19

    Slovak suffix "-násť" is equivalent to English "-teen". However, "-násť" is used already from number 11 (compared to English, starting from 13-thirteen).

    enlightened We pronounce the words this way: 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19.

    How to say number from 11-19? Only add the affix "-násť" to the numbers from 1-9. There are some small changes in the highlighted words you need to pay attention to:

    Counting from 11 - 20 Počítanie od 11 - 20
    eleven jedenásť
    twelve dvanásť
    thirteen trinásť
    fourteen štrnásť
    fifteen pätnásť 
    sixteen šestnásť 
    seventeen sedemnásť
    eighteen osemnásť
    nineteen devätnásť 


    Numbers from 20 to 90

    You can check the table below to see how the numbers look. General rule is to add the affix  "-dsať" (20, 30, 40) or "-desiat" (50, 60, 70, 80, 90).

    enlightened We pronounce the words this way: 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90.

    Counting from 20 - 100 Počítanie od 20 - 100
    twenty dvadsať
    thirty tridsať
    forty štyridsať
    fifty päťdesiat
    sixty šesťdesiat
    seventy sedemdesiat
    eighty osemdesiat
    ninety deväťdesiat


    Here is an example how to create numbers from 21-29 and the rule applies for all other tens.

    enlightened We pronounce the words this way: 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29.

    Note that the numbers are written together, without space or dash.

    Counting from 21 - 29 Počítanie od 21 - 29
    twenty-one dvadsaťjeden
    twenty-two dvadsaťdva
    twenty-three dvadsaťtri
    twenty-four dvadsaťštyri
    twenty-five dvadsaťpäť
    twenty-six dvadsaťšesť
    twenty-seven dvadsaťsedem
    twenty-eight dvadsaťosem
    twenty-nine dvadsaťdeväť

    Examples:

    • 32 = tridsaťdva
    • 94 = deväťdesiatštyri
    • 54 = päťdesiatštyri
    • 87 = osemdesiatsedem
    • 76 = sedemdesiatšesť


    Numbers from 100 to1 000

    You are almost there! Now we show you how to create hundreds. Simply add the affix "-sto" at the end of the basic numbers.

    enlightened We pronounce the words this way: 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000.

    Counting from 100 - 1 000 Počítanie od 100 - 1 000
    one hundred sto
    two hundred dvesto
    three hundred tristo
    four hundred štyristo
    five hundred päťsto
    six hundred šesťsto
    seven hundred sedemsto
    eight hundred osemsto
    nine hundred deväťsto
    one thousand tisíc

    Note that there is a small change in "dvesto". It is "dvesto", not "dvasto".

    Examples:

    • 457 = šytristopäaťdesiatsedem
    • 789 = sedemstoosemdesiatdeväť
    • 321 = tristodvadsaťjeden
    • 615 = šesťstopätnásť
    • 101 = stojeden
    • 120 = stodvadsať

     

    Numbers from 1 000 to 10 000

    Here again the same rule applies. Just add the affix "-tisíc" to the cardinal number!

    English Slovak
    1 000 tisíc
    2 000 dvetisíc
    3 000 tritisíc
    4 000 štyritisíc
    5 000 päťtisíc
    6 000 šesťtisíc
    7 000 sedemtisíc
    8 000 osemtisíc
    9 000 deväťtisíc
    10 000 desaťtisíc

    Note that there is a small change in "dvetisíc". It is "dvetisíc", not "dvatisíc".

    Examples:

    • 1 458 = tisícštyristopäťdesiatosem
    • 8 200 = osemtisícdvesto
    • 3 631 = tritisícšesťstotridsaťjeden
    • 2 592 = dvetisícpäťstodeväťdesiatdva
