The numbers up to 10 will need to be learned. The tens are formed by adding -anta to the digit-stem. However, the exact spelling will need to be learned as generally letters are omitted or inserted between the stem and the suffix to aid pronunciation. The words for 10 and 20 are exceptions, in that they do not end in the -anta suffix.

Italian two-digit numbers are written as a single words (i.e. without spaces or hyphens). The numbers 11 to 16 follow a similar pattern to the English numbers 11 to 19. They end in -dici.

For numbers above 16, the unit word is added to the tens stem. Again, letters are often omitted and the 'rules' for this are best learned by studying the words for numbers up to 100.

Ordinals are irregular and will need to be learned individually.

If anyone knows the correct way to write 2,675 Euros (i.e. two thousand, six hundred and seventy five in Italian, I think it is:
due mila seicento e settantacinque, but with no spaces) any help greatly appreciated.

I must study harder :oops:

duemilaseicentosettantacinque is the correct way.

Yes, right! :lol: :lol: :lol: Afraid I am doing the paying this time....and it's nothing to do with the Calabria purchase :wink:

I am still looking to rent it out. Had a few enquiries but they were all "teasers" it would appear.

Oh! thanks David... for the confirmation on the numbers :oops: (And others, who have helped me with the numbers) Cheers!
