NeoQuenya/Numerals
The first 11 numerals are:
 minë
 atta
 neldë
 canta
 lempë
 enquë
 otso
 tolto
 nertë
 quëa
 minquë
As the elves originally used the duodecimal (base12) number system, they had need for 12 different digits. This is the reason that the symbols for 10 and 11 are included in this table.
There are two words for the number 12:

 12 rasta/yunquë
The word rasta means something like "a dozen", yunquë is used for counting.
The numbers 13 to 19 are made with the suffix –cëa after the first syllable of the number words for 3 to 9:

 13 nelcëa
 14 cancëa
 15 lencëa
 16 encëa
 17 occëa
 18 tolcëa
 19 nercëa
The multiples of 10, thus 20 to 90, are constructed with the suffix –cainen:

 20 yucainen
 30 nelcainen
 40 cancainen
 50 lemincainen
 60 eneccainen
 70 otsocainen
 80 tolcainen
 90 nercainen
 100 tuxa
To make a number that is not a multiple of 10, we first write the units and then afterwards the multiple of 10 (to speakers of German or Dutch, this is very common):

 54 canta lemincainen
The numbers between 100 and 200 can be made in the same fashion:

 140 cancainen tuxa
 172 atta otsocainen tuxa
Just as for 12, the numbers 110 and 120 can be written in two different ways:

 110 cainen tuxa/minquecainen
 120 yucainen tuxa/yunquecainen
To write the numbers 200 to 900 we use the same prefixes as the multiples of 10, but this time with the suffix –tuxa:

 200 yutuxa
 300 neltuxa
 400 cantuxa
etc.
We also know the number words:

 1000 húmë
 1 million mindóra
Numbers are said to follow the noun, except sometimes er. Before atta "2", the noun is "singular" or actually uninflected.

 Eldar nelde "three Eldar"
 Elen atta "two stars" (lit. "two star")
Ordinals[edit]
The first three ordinals are irregular:

 first: minya
 second: tatya
 third: nelya
From four until nine we remove the last vowel of the cardinal number and add –ëa:

 four: canta → fourth: cantëa
 five: lempë → fifth: lempëa
 six: enquë → sixth: enquëa
 seven: otso → seventh: otsëa
 eight: tolto → eighth: toltëa
 nine: nertë → ninth: nertëa
Ten is again irregular:

 ten: cainen → tenth: quainëa
But eleven and twelve also follow the normal rule:

 eleven: minquë → eleventh: minquëa
 twelve: yunquë → twelfth: yunquëa
For "half" we have the word perya.
Quotientials[edit]
There also exists quotientals that are used when something has happened a certain number of times. They are used as adverbs:

 eru once
 yú twice
 nel thrice (or three times)
 can four times
The higher numbers are formed with the suffix –llumë:

 lemillumë five times
 enquellumë six times
 cëallumë ten times
 tuxallumë one hundred times
