Notes:
 The numbers from twelve to nineteen are
formed by simple addition. For example 12 (SibSong) derives
from 10 (Sib) + 2 (Song). The same pattern applies to form
the rest of the numbers up to and including nineteen.
 The number 11 (SibEd) is formed like the
numbers from twelve to nineteen. However, the word "Neung"
does not appear in the word for SibEd (eleven). It is replaced
by the word "Ed" which also means one but is never
used by itself. It is always combined with some other numbers
as in 21, 31, 41,..101, etc.

Notes:
 The numbers thirty to ninety are formed
by adding the word "Sib" after 3,4,5,...,9. The
number 30 (SamSib) comes from 3 (Sam) followed by 10 (Sib).
The same process is used to form the rest of the numbers from
forty upto and including ninety.
 However, the word "Song" ( number
2) does not appear in the word for twenty but it is replaced
by the word "Yee" which also means two. The word
"Yee" is never used by itself. It is always combined
with some other numbers as in YeeSib Song (22), YeeSib Sam
(23), YeeSib See (24),....... YeeSib Gao (29), etc.
