## Writing Numbers

Numbers in Niw englisc are written together, as in modern German. For example:

• 256 = twahundsixandfeiftiȝ

The exception here is when writing basic numbers, such as two hundred, in which case the numbers are most often written separately:

• 200 = twa hundred
• 500 = feif hundred

## Fractions

Fractions are written using the ordinals with an -el suffix, as in German.

• 2/3 = tweȝn þriddel
• 8/13 = eaht þrietienþel
