numbers in Darija

Easy namber in darija.

From one to 20 your only choice is to remember them. from 21 to 99, like in english, just from right to left instead of twenty one for “21” we say one and the letter “O” and twenty, wahed “1” O 3achrine “20”. like 34 we will say reb3a “4” O tlatine “30” the same 59 we will say ts3oude “9” O khamsine “50” .

9 “tasoude”O50 “khamsine”59
3 “tlata”O40 “rab3ine”43

you don’t have to say the whole “O” like you are spelling it, just scratch your Throat with a small O

try for your self how to say 45.

the same for 100 and 1000 and million and billion you have to remember them all other follow the same process except for 200 and 2000
one hundred named “MIA”, 200 “MITINE”

300 is 3 “tlata” 100 “mia”, but when we prononce it we remove the last letter of the 3 in this case we remove “a” “or we just eat it” to make connection between the 3 and 100 and we say TALT + MIA ” TALTMIA” unstead of TLATA + MIA

the same for 500 KHAMSMIA KHAMS + MIA we remove the last “a” from KHAMSA “5”

alos 900 TESAAMIA, TESAA + MIA We remove the letter “d” from Tesaaoud “tes3oud” “9”
