Notes:

1. The numbers from twelve to nineteen are formed by simple addition. For example 12 (Sib-Song) derives from 10 (Sib) + 2 (Song). The same pattern applies to form the rest of the numbers up to and including nineteen.
2. The number 11 (Sib-Ed) is formed like the numbers from twelve to nineteen. However, the word "Neung" does not appear in the word for Sib-Ed (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:

1. The numbers thirty to ninety are formed by adding the word "Sib" after 3,4,5,...,9. The number 30 (Sam-Sib) 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.
2. 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 Yee-Sib Song (22), Yee-Sib Sam (23), Yee-Sib See (24),....... Yee-Sib Gao (29), etc.
