The Klingon numbers are:

  • wa’ - one, 1
  • cha’ - two, 2
  • wej - three, 3
  • loS - four, 4
  • vagh - five, 5
  • jav - six, 6
  • Soch - seven, 7
  • chorgh - eight, 8
  • Hut - nine, 9

Numbers greater than Hut are affixed to form a higher number such as wa’­vatlh (one hundred) or wej­vatlh vagh­maH loS (three hundred fifty four).

  • -maH - ten, 10
  • -vatlh - hundred, 100
  • -SaD/-Sa­nID - thousand, 1000
  • -netlh - ten thousand, 10,000
  • -bIp - hundred thousand, 100,000
  • -’uy’ - million, 1,000,000

Numbers that precede a noun are used for counting (e.g. cha’ Duj two vessels), numbers that follow a noun are used for numbering (e.g. Duj cha’ vessel number two).

  • cha’DIch - second
  • wa’maH vaghDIch - fifteenth


  • wa’logh - once
  • cha’logh - twice
  • chorghvatlhlogh - eight hundred times
